MEET THE FLINSTONE'S
Fred and Wilma, you spent $6,005.59 on electricity last year. I've got great news!
First, let's get started with your QUESTIONS!
Hey! Gary, I was talking to a dear friend of ours which is a customer of yours about loosing power more often these days. it seems every year we loose power due to weather for hours at a time and recently lost power for a couple of days, It was miserable!
We know solar alone does not keep the power on by itself. We have considered a generator but, we are curious to learn about a strategy we can be completely ENERGY INDEPENDENT.
Whereas, if we loose electricity for 10 minutes, 10 hours or 10 days our farm keeps running automatically, regardless of what Mother Nature or man throws at us.
Gary, do you have some thoughts on how we can integrate a generator and maybe new technology batteries to keep our electricity on no matter what happens? I DO NOT want to get out in the middle of the night in the rain, lightening wind and hail to fiddle with a generator that will not start, or have to refill fuel, have extensions cords laid across the kitchen and bathrooms. We definitely don't want our water well pump down, Heat or Cooling off, TV's off, Internet off!
GARY, DO YOU FEEL ME?
YES! FRED AND WILMA!
"I FEEL YOU"
I HAVE DESIGNED & BUILT MANY SYSTEMS THAT WILL ACCOMPLISH ALL YOU ASK FOR!
First, I would like to identify a very certain reality!
We live in Rural Texas and experience unexpected severe storms at any given time, sometimes loosing power for hours, days, weeks or even longer.
Now, seriously think about it . . .
Would the power company first, restore power to thousands in cities before restoring power to a few in rural homes, farms, ranches, businesses and oil leases?
EVERY YEAR WE SEE ON THE NEWS DURING STORM & HURRICANE SEASON POWER IS LOST FOR DAYS, WEEKS EVEN MONTHS.
A very sobering thought!
Gary, very interesting & concerning to say the least. We can't even imagine being without power for any amount of time!
Fred & Wilma,
4Q POWER will design & build you and Wilma a solar, storage & generator system to accomplish all of your goals!
Solar, Storage & Generator tightly integrated will provide immediate automatic recovery from a power outage in less than a second. You will not have to brave the dangerous freezing or wet storms, EVERYTHING IS AUTOMATIC! You will not loose your AC, Heat, Refrigerators, Cooking, Hot Water Heater, Internet or your TV due to loss of power! When the electricity comes back on the system switches back to grid power
After we flew our drone over your property and rendered an Eagle's Eye View we can begin to identify the best placement for your new solar. Solar works best facing 180º due south and at a pitch of 20º-34º for the best harvesting of the sun throughout the year. So, I have oriented the survey photo (below) oriented North on top and facing South on bottom.
Now, begin "thinking out-loud" with Wilma and come up with some ideas for a second use of the structure.
Wilma, what do you think about what Gary has discussed about solar, storage and generators so far?
He has brought up some things we have never considered. Can you imagine you me and the kids without power for any amount of time? What would we do?
What would grandma do all by herself? We would need to consider making her safe too! I know one thing we don't want to wait to be in a crisis and then ask these questions . . .
I really like Gary and how he is answering all of our questions and I feel really good about his expertise.
But, I don't want to be looking at an ugly ol' solar system which might take away from my enjoyment of all the wildlife roaming Bedrock!
Wilma, darling, I know how much you love watching all of the dinosaurs running across our fields feeding on smaller prey.
YABBA! DABBA! DOOOO!
Hey, Neighbor's! I was talking with Dino Delong who has had solar for a 1000 years and he said, " I get all of my electricity for free every year". He mentioned at the end of 1019 he had a credit to be applied toward their January 1020 Electric Bill!
a thousand years ago . . .
Can you believe that we spend $500 Armadillo Bones a month easy on electricity! That's over $6,000 a year! Ooooh! Not Good!
Gary, we have a large workshop in the southwest corner. In the workshop I work on several classic cars at the same time and require 240V for welder, machining, drill presses, compressors and the like.
Are you sure solar, storage & generator can provide power we need most when we loose power?
Gary, when you design our solar system would you provide some covered parking for Dino,
Flintstone SUV, Flintstone Implements,
Flintstone Tractor, Flintstone F250
and Flintstone Boulder BBQ?
YABBA! DABBA! DOOOO!
Solar design provides 100%+ of total annual electricity usage.
After carefully listening to Fred & Wilma I suggested a "Lean To" design and designed for 4-6 covered parking places for DINO, Flintstone F-250, Flintstone Tractor and Flintstone BBQ grill . . .
Fred reiterated that the covered parking area had to be high enough for DINO to get out of the rain and sun to protect his sensitive skin.
Job Well Done If I May Say So Myself!
Schedule some time to meet online with Gary. He has been designing and building solar systems in Archer & Wichita counties since 2009. He understands all of the incentives, Tax credits, Bonus Depreciation and Tax Exempt Property Taxes.
