Charles Smith Solar Residence Video

The Charles Smith solar residence is a standard Helio Energy Solutions residential installation located in Encinitas, California. The installation was a 54 panel, 7.56kW BP 175 system with a Xantrex 3 inverter that was designed to power both his pool house and main home.  Helio Energy Solutions provided design, engineering, construction and utility commissioning for the solar installation, delivering the project within the span of four days.

Helio Energy Solutions’s integrated turnkey energy solutions enabled the Smith Residence to achieve their renewable energy  objectives.

In the video below, Mr. Smith shows us how solar energy powers his home, pool pump, spa, fountain and even the electric motorcycle that takes him to lunch.
