Net zero home • Nampa, Idaho

SYSTEM DETAILS: grid-tied, roof-mounted solar PV system

PROJECT NOTES: This 8.33 kW solar PV installation, coupled with energy efficient habits of the owner, makes this a ‘net zero’ home—in other words, the solar system produces as much energy as the home consumes.  Therefore, the homeowner was able to lock in his energy costs for the 25+ year life of the system.  The system payback is estimated at 10 years.
