The Antonini Residence

Salt Lake City, UT

The Challenge:

Greg and Amy moved back home to Salt Lake City from northern California and applied for a grant from the State of Utah Office of Energy Development for a renewable energy system. They received a $4,500 rebate for their PV system, which was one of over 150 residential systems installed in 2011.

The Creative Energies Solution:

We installed a 5 kW system with online monitoring for both total home electricity consumption and PV system output. Annually the system produces over 90% of the Antonini's total electricity usage. The data produced by the Egauge is received in real-time so Greg and Amy can see how their appliance usage directly affects energy consumption and how it is offset by their solar energy system.

The System:

  • 5 kW residential grid tied PV
  • Sharp 240W Black-on-Black modules
  • Power-One Aurora Inverter with Egauge online monitoring
  • Produces 7,000 kWh per year and saves 5,163 pounds of coal per year
