Dave & Sue Taylor  158 Freeman Rd, Plainfield

 

Bill Marrs   41 Churchill Dr, Cornish

It's a 4kw system (16 x 250w PV panels). It's a ground-mounted, tracking
(moves to face the sun). Basically it is the standard PV tracker system Solaflect
installs. It was installed in October 2015.

(Churchill Dr is off of Parsonage (just north, the first right from the intersection
with Townhouse, near the fairgrounds). It's a long dirt driveway that we share with a
neighbor (we're at the top, you can see the solar tracker as you drive up). I should mention
that the ground near our tracker is often muddy this time of year. So, bring boots if you want
to get close to it.)
