New Residential PV System in Rochester


Curt and Jane Shellum just put up a 2.52 kW system on their Rochester home.  Their system  was designed and installed by Curt Shellum who works for Innovative Power Systems ( and is composed of 12 x 210 W Sanyo Hit Power N panels for a total of 2.52 kw.  The inverter is a Fronius Ig 3000. 

The panels are connected into the grid and are expected to produce about 3,000 kWh a year which is 50-60% of the home’s annual electric usage.  This percentage could increase as the household completes additional energy efficiancy measures. 

For more information on their system, call Curt at 507-990-1382.  The house will also be featured on the upcoming Solar Tour on Saturday, October 3 from 10 a.m.-5:00 p.m.  To learn more and/or visit area houses featured on the tour follow this link:
