Solar Systems used in the Freeport House for solar electric and heating.

The solar thermal provides domestic hot water and supplemental space heat. The collector array on the south roof consists of 160 Apricus evacuated tubes. The array is mounted at 60 degrees to horizontal to optimize performance for space heating. Two 160 gallon Stiebel Eltron dual coil tanks are used to store the thermal energy for domestic hot water and for space heat.

There is a 5.4 kW Photovoltaic array on the southwest roof of the  house consisting of (24)  225 watt Sunpower modules.   The modules feed power into a Sunpower 5000 watt inverter. The inverter will feed roughly 6200 kilo-watt hours of electricity per year into the house and/or the power grid.
