    I’m interested in solar power, very interested. There is a world of stuff on the web… some maybe good, some not so much. So, I want to contact some local folks who are knowledgable about solar power and to obtain very good, truthful and reliable materials – books, brochures, instruction videos – that will help me understand how I might get into solar… start small and build from there. Can you recommend such materials to me? Also, I’d love to actually visit with someone who has solar power in their home. If a picture is worth a thousand words… a visit is worth a thousand pictures.

    I am an appreciative Clarksville, TN Resident…

    I just built a 240 watt panel and installed a grid tie inverter and my meter is running backwards. I am looking at adding two more panels.

      Hi David. How did you learn how to build and install your solar panel and grid tie inverter? Thank you!

    I would like to setup a solar system but would need to have it pay for itself. Are there any grants for homeowners in middle Tn for this?

      Right now, I’m not aware of any grants available. The Clean TN Energy Grant Program ended for this year, but it will be available for the next 3 years. Currently you get a 30% federal tax credit, 1 year accelerated depreciation, and a $1000 payment from TVA. TVA will pay you $0.12 per kWh over the retail rate for 10 years.

      We do not sell panels but some of our sponsors do sell them. Contact Sundog Solar or Simple Energy Works for information on pricing.

    I have a large property (100+acres) that was to be used and is zoned for farming. I am interested in creating a large solar panel array on a portion of the property. How can I go about locating resources/partners/etc that would offer a low cost of entry? Many thanks. John

      There are several solar installers in Middle Tennessee who would be more than willing to talk with you.

    I’ve been reading about PV panels, and I would like to know how well does PV panels work in middle TN for supplying electricity for the home year round?

      Go to our site and choose the resources tab located at the top of the site. The first reference is PVwatts. Go to that site and on the map of the USA click on Tennessee; then click on Nashville. That will tell you how much power PV panels will deliver. Your best panels will deliver 18 to 20% conversion efficiency; your system will convert 87% to ac power. Any further questions, just let us know.

    I just returned from Canada. While there I met many people who had solar panels on there properties. Some farms covered with them . Some areas roof tops covered with them .Several friends owning properties get an income selling back to the electrical companies. This was in Southern Ontario. I am interested in if this is available in Middle Tn.? I currently own several properties suitable for these. Panel. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    The type of physician I would like to work for is a Pediatrician. Pediatrician’s sptcialey is to work with children. I have been working with children for a long time mainly because I work at a daycare facility. I’ve got to a point where I feel like I can handle anything that will come my way with them. It would also leave me feeling good at the end of the day to know that I have helped in some way to make a child feel better.The type of physician I would not care to work for is a Epidemiologist. Epidemiologist’s specialize in epidemics caused by infections agents and also work with sexually transmitted diseases. I feel if I were to work in this type of sptcialey I would be putting my self at risk of exposure to these infectious agents. Also I would be focusing a lot of my time on trying to not get infected instead of having a steady mind on what I was actually supposed to be doing.
