Henry Dykema of Sundance Solar Systems Presents to BEC Risk Management Committee
Henry Dykema, Sundance Solar Systems provided a comprehensive review of Solar PV systems-how they work and what they cost customers. He described in detail three levels of solar installations: off-grid, grid-tied and grid-tied with batteries. Grid-tied systems with batteries are and the most expensive solution with the most reliability and flexibility. They keep the power on when the grid goes down.
Supporting clean power and wishing to have an independent energy source are the most common motivations for installing renewable systems Dykema reported. He asked the board to examine the potential impact of net-metered systems on co-op revenue realistically – the impact of current systems and likely additional installations over the foreseeable future is small.
