Fishel Solar home
Ed Fishel - 2125 Weston Pl SW, Rochester, MN 55902
This Fishel home hosts an 8.8 kW roof mount solar array that was commissioned in January of 2015. Since then the system has produced more than 100% of the home's needs and offset some of their water bill from Rochester Public Utilities (RPU).
The system has 32 panels spread over four locations. (Nine facing east and twenty-three facing south.) The owner decided to install a PV solar system to help the environment and global warming, and because it would reduce their RPU bill. Ed said, "Hopefully, in the long term we will actually save some money."
The family also changed almost all of their light bulbs to LED and florescent, saying "It did not make sense to me to spend a lot for a solar PV system and not spend a little more for LED bulbs."
They also use a Rainbird sprinkling system that waters the lawn based on weather, and thus uses less water.
