Russ Lawrence joined the decentralized power revolution years ago with his home in the mountains outside of Hamilton. When he decided to move to town he knew he wanted to maintain his energy independent lifestyle.
Russ is an efficient user of electricity, so using average annual estimates of utility usage (he has not yet been in the home a full year) SBS Solar sized the system to provide 100% of Russ’ annual electric needs. He is anticipating excess production and plans to convert from his efficient natural gas furnace to an air source heat pump.
One of his first FaceBook posts of his new system included his NorthWestern Energy net-meter running in reverse.
