Yancey Residence


Customer Comment
“Creative Energies did a outstanding job of evaluating, designing/costing and installing my 2.8 kW grid-tied solar power system. They patiently walked me thru what they could provide without the hype that typically comes with new technology. And when I caused a 7 month delay in the installation (out of state over winter), they said if there is a savings in equipment cost it would be passed back to me. True to their word, a $2000 savings allowed for a 20% bigger system (future need) and monitoring via the Internet. Creative Energies work on my solar panel power system left me with a big grin on my face.”

The Challenge
Craig and Eula Yancey live in a modern home in a neighborhood of Sheridan Wyoming. Their objective was to reduce or eliminate electric energy costs and to reduce the environmental impact resulting from electric generation.

The Creative Energies Solution

The Yancey’s installed efficient appliances and lighting in their new home, knowing that it would allow them to install a smaller solar power system and so, recoup some cost. They contacted Creative Energies and together we developed a plan for a solar power system to meet their needs. During the landscaping of the new home, Creative Energies supplied guidance on how they could position their new trees so as to keep shading to acceptable levels. The Yancey’s are currently producing substantially more electricity than they consume on an annual basis.

The System

  • 2.8 kW grid connected solar power system with twelve Sharp 230 watt modules and an SMA inverter and eGauge web-based monitoring.
