Solar Tour Preview


On October 4, Green Energy Ohio (GEO), Third Sun Solar and Wind Power, and Dovetail Solar and Wind Power are hosting the 6th Annual Solar Tour in Southeastern Ohio. Rural Action is helping to organize and promote the event, and, as part of our work, we’re giving our readers quick previews of five of the stops on this year’s Athens and Amesville tours:

Ohio University Compost Facility: This recently installed, in-vessel composting unit can process up to two tons of material from the university every day. In addition to its composting capabilities, Ohio University has also installed roof and ground-mounted solar arrays at the facility which will offset its electricity grid needs by approximately 50 percent.

The Edges: The Van Doren Bush house is custom-built with local poplar logs, and features a recycled slate roof, an attached greenhouse, a soapstone woodstove with a masonry chimney, and a hybrid solar PV and wind system. The greenhouse provides passive solar heating for the house year-round, and the wind and solar arrays were constructed in 1995.

The Greenfield Residence: The Greenfield Home is an 11-year-old off-grid home, completely powered by solar PV and a wind generator. The home is a passive solar-designed timber frame structure built from local poplar. Other efficiency features are a woodstove in the central hearth; rainwater catchment and cistern water supply; radiant floor heating, and fully integrated energy efficiency measures and appliances.

The Kremer Residence: The Kremer residence combines energy efficiency and energy conservation. Their hybrid energy production system consists of a ground-mounted solar system and a 64-foot tall wind turbine. The house has been net positive in terms of electrical energy nearly every month since the installation was completed in 2004.

Sean Jones Rental House: Athens is home to one of the most energy efficient rental houses on the market, thanks to Sean Jones of Rockside Rentals. The walls of this house were built with insulated concrete forms to create a strong structure with plenty of thermal insulation. The house also features Energy Star appliances and bamboo flooring, as well as two renewable energy systems.\

These locations are just a few of the highlights from the Southeast Ohio Solar Tour. For more information, or to pre-register for the event, contact Michelle Greenfield of Third Sun Solar and Wind Power at (740.597.3111), or email her at michelle@third-sun.com.
