Alternative Energy System

Our coach in Wellton, AZ
Includes 20 M55 solar panels on bus roof and 24 in the ground array; 4 SouthWest Power wind turbines, and a 30 gallon batch type solar water heater



We began our quest for energy independence in the late 1980s. These photos show the system between
1999-2004

In 2003, we became aware that Pennsylvania has more radiant energy in the summer than Arizona in the winter, so we built a rack for the back of the coach to transport the panels for the ground array between Arizona and Pennsylvania.

The system includes two 3 kw Statpower Prosine inverters and two stacked Trace SW4024 inverters, which can supply 240VAC so we were easily able to supply power to our home in Pennsylvania
