T’is the season for solar savings! Here at SunSource we’re asking Santa for an ITC tax credit extension. (You can, too! Write your letter to congress here.) But we also know how to slow down, enjoy some milk and cookies, and read some good articles.
That’s how we stumbled across Enphase’s Solar Landmark series and read about their solar models on Santa’s workshops. Enphase develops the FEMA-recommended microinverters that SunSource uses as well as the monitoring software we provide for each of our customers.
In this latest addition to their Solar Landmark Series, they highlighted the Santa Clause House in North Pole, Alaska; Santa’s Workshop in North Pole, New York; and Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi, Finland.
Their designs were created using the same technology SunSource uses as well as Google – Aurora.
Here’s some of the highlights.
Santa Claus House, North Pole, Alaska
Here is the 3D site model Enphase made for the Santa Clause house.
They determined the southwest facing section would receive the most sunlight throughout the year so they decided to start there. They finished by designing a system that would produce 79.1MWh per year for the site.
Santa’s Workshop, North Pole, New York
Here is the 3D rendering for Santa’s workshop in New York.
Santa Claus Village, Rovaniemi, Finland
And here is the system designed for Santa Claus Village.
Aurora technology allows you to remotely and accurately design a solar system for virtually anywhere in the world which is why it is revered as one of the best solar designing software in the world. SunSource combines this superior program, with FEMA-recommended Enphase microinverters, and top tier solar panels.
