A Ground-Mounted TerraSol System Saves Trees and Time for this Chester County Home
Homeowners from Lincoln University, PA wanted to update their farmhouse property with a new PV solar system. However, several large trees cast a fair amount of shade on the home throughout the year, which would severely decrease the amount of electricity that could be produced via solar.
TerraSol’s solution: a ground-mounted PV solar system, rather than rooftop panels, out of sight from the house itself. Ultimately, the system offset the home’s complete energy usage with 10% fewer panels than a roof system would have.
