Chuck Kernler - 1530 Gilmore Valley Rd, Winona, MN 55987
Just inside the city limits of Winona, this home is near the banks of Gilmore Creek, in beautiful Gilmore Valley.
Chuck’s garage is home to a new 5.2 kW grid-tied solar PV system, which he expects will meet about 50% of his electrical needs.
Chuck has additional sustainability features as well. He heats mostly with wood, and grows much of his own produce in a fenced back yard garden. Chuck is also a leader with a large native rain garden and a frog pond in his back yard, both of which collect the runoff from his home and yard.
