A 3-kw array of photovoltaic solar cells mounted on a garage roof provides electricity to a Rhode Island home. The double row of cells create a pleasing geometry, covering the roof in style.
Two applications of solar power share the rooftop of a pine-board Connecticut studio: an array of photovoltaic modules (on right) generates electricity, while two flat plate collectors (top left) provide hot water.
The south-facing sloped roof of a large Massachusetts barn offers an ideal surface to mount a 5-kw system of photovoltaic modules for generating electricity.
Progressive Meets Traditional
Modern technology crowns a traditional gambrel-roof Colonial house in New England; the photovoltaic modules turn sunlight into electricity.
Solar panels on a poolhouse roof are an energy-efficient way to heat the pool's water.
