Abstract
The Triple 8 Ranch is currently using grid power for all electric appliances on the property. This has resulted in a massive annual power bill, and the new property owner has approached us to develop a solution. We focused mainly on solar power, as the restrictions at the site led to a number of interesting design decisions. The end result is a reduction in the power consumption on site while lessening the carbon footprint, investing in long term power infrastructure, and using green energy as opposed to fossil fuel sourced power.
