Photovoltaic Systems
for Grid-Free Living

PV panels provide clean – green energy. During electricity generation with PV panels there is no harmful greenhouse gas emissions thus solar PV is environmentally friendly.

Next generation panels now have higher outputs and cost less to install.

Water is a much better medium for transporting thermal energy than air is; it warms up faster and stays warm for longer. Add to that the fact that boilers don’t have to worry about duct leaks, and it’s easy to see that boilers are far more energy efficient than forced air systems are. Boilers also tend to heat homes much more comfortably than forced air systems. Warm air that enters a room will rise to the ceiling, where it is least useful to the occupants. Boiler systems transfer heat from object to object, keeping it near the floor of the room where it can be better felt.

A boiler system is unlike a forced air system in many ways. Rather than using air to distribute heat, the boiler pumps hot water throughout the home. A network of pipes is installed in the subfloor of each room in the house that is to receive heat. Occasionally, the network will have terminals like baseboard heaters or radiators attached to it. When the thermostat activates the boiler, it begins to run water through a heat exchanger in the unit. The warm water is then pumped throughout the pipe network in the home. As the water flows through the pipes under the floor, the heat from it radiates upward and into the room.

Solar Hot Water Heating systems installed by Sunpower Construction Lake Tahoe

Solar Hot
Water Heaters


Capture thermal energy from the sun and use it to heat water for your home. These systems are made of a few major components: collectors, a storage tank, a heat exchanger, a controller system, and a backup heater. Reduce your carbon footprint with solar.

Solar Home
Heating


Use solar energy to heat a fluid -- either liquid or air -- and then transfer the solar heat directly to the interior space or to a storage system for later use. If the solar system cannot provide adequate space heating, an auxiliary or back-up system provides the additional heat.
