As a lot of you know, for the last few months, we have been building a custom home in the Martingham Community of St. Michaels, in partnership with Charles Paul Goebel Architects of Easton. This beautiful waterfront property boasts an unbelievable view of the Miles River. No corners were cut when designing this home which includes many unique qualities. One feature that was recently brought to my attention was the installation of 50 solar panels that had been added flat to the roofline.
The homeowner recently blogged that he had produced a surprising amount of solar energy in just the first week of operation and that he was very pleased with the level of production, especially since he opted to install the SunPower X22 360 watt panels flat for aesthetic reasons.
For the solar panels on this Martingham home, we worked with Sunrise Solar of Chestertown. I reached out to them and asked them to share some of the benefits of adding solar panels to a roofline. What I learned was that one of the most obvious reasons is the money you will save over the lifetime of the panels, but there are many other benefits and a few are listed in Sunrise Solar’s June 18, 2018 blog.
In this Martingham Community home, we not only added solar panels but a Geothermal Heat pump to assist with the homeowner's desires for energy efficiency. Over the years, with each homeowner we work with, we find that desires and expectations are as unique as the individuals we work for. We take pride in continuously delivering a product complete with all of the little extras that make our clients feel at home.
