Robert Ziemba - 59775 Co Rd 71, Mazeppa, MN 55956
The Ziemba family installed a ground-sourced heating system in 2011, and then a solar electric array in 2012 to offset overall electric costs.
In addition to their 8.46 kW grid-tied system they also have a whole house backup generator, which was installed in April of 2016 to run off of LP. To date they have used the generator twice.
They also have an LP furnace for backup, but have not used it since installation in July of 2011. They have and burn wood, which in combination with their solar electric powered ground-sourced heating system has cut their LP gas use to just 200 gallons a year, most of which is for hot water.
Robert says in most months he runs a credit on his Xcel bills.
