Customer Stories: Photographer Thrives with Renewable Solar Energy in Colorado

Nathan has lived in Colorado for 45 years for the simple reason of wanting snow and sun all in one day. Being a photographer, he couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful place to live. Choosing a lifestyle that thrived on renewable energy was important to Nathan because of his belief that it is a responsible way to live.

After noticing renewable energy gaining momentum in third world countries as well as more industrialized countries, he jumped at the opportunity when the USA introduced tax incentives for purchasing solar power systems. After 15 years of building his home, he finally had the chance to implement solar power which completed his goal of utilizing active and passive solar.

After doing extensive research based on finances and time, Nathan decided to work with Northern Arizona Wind & Sun for his project. After calculating Nathan’s projected energy consumption, it was recommended to go with (27) Canadian Solar CS6K-305MS Monocrystalline 305-Watt Solar Panels. Accompanying the solar panels, we recommended the SMA Sunny Boy 7.7 7680-Watt Transformer less Grid-tie String Inverter to handle his current power needs as well any future expansion in his system.

With instruction from our staff, Nathan connected and installed the solar array as a roof-install. After getting the system up and running, the system performs just as Nathan had hoped. A smart phone app that syncs with the SMA Sunny Boy inverter allows Nathan to view energy input into his system in real-time, when he mentions brings him joy daily knowing he’s using renewable energy to the fullest.
