Peck Solar Installs the 6 kW array
"SunCommon launched 2 years ago with a mission to tear down the barriers to solar, making it easy and affordable for all Vermonter", said Duane Peterson, co-founder.
The installation took place on a brisk, yet sun-filled 20° day at the home of Stephen & Micki Woodruff, the 1000th SunCommon residential customer.
Speakers included James Moore, co-founder of SunCommon, Jeff Peck, President of Peck Electric, and Graham Rae, EcoFasten Solar Project Manager.
Peck Electric Solar Division handles all SunCommon installs, and this one was no different.
GreenFasten™, a patented watertight solar roof mount system from industry leader EcoFasten Solar plays an integral part in mounting the panels to the composition shingle roof.
Patricia Moulton, Secretary of the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development also spoke, and noted that the solar industry is helping the state to become energy independent, has created many jobs, and has saved Vermont residents money.
Vermont holds the title as the state with the most solar jobs per capita.
Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
