Take a look at this success story out of North Carolina…
Faced with multiple solar installation challenges, a North Carolina homebuilder turned to Deltec Homes and Sun Bandit® to help make their client’s green dream home a reality.
Their client, a couple building a retirement home in the mountains, wanted a home that was both energy efficient and powered by solar. The problem? The home is served by a small electric cooperative, not an investor-owned utility. That means the cooperative is exempt from North Carolina’s net-metering rules—making grid-tied solar more expensive and complicated.
With a short building timeframe, and no option for a net-metered grid-tied system, the couple worried their house wouldn’t be as green or as energy efficient as they’d imagined.
The builder installed Sun Bandit’s solar hot water system to power one of the home’s biggest energy draws—water heating—with free energy from the sun.
Sun Bandit’s stand-alone system requires no grid interconnection, eliminating any involvement from the electric cooperative. And the system’s four PV modules could be located on the east-facing roof while still meeting the couple’s hot water needs.
The solution worked so well that Deltec Homes is now offering a Sun Bandit hybrid solar kit with every panelized home.
