And so from the beginning we intended to have a renewable energy source and as most of you know we started the process of clearing land to make space for a large array a while ago (look at this blog from Jan. 27th “Clearing the way“).
And so we found this amazing local solar company with a long standing reputation of excellence to start our switch from the grid to being more self sufficient.
Matt, the owner of Ericson Solar, has worked in over 100℉ (38C) weather to build the ground mount structure for a 44 panel array that will provide all the energy we need for a long time to come.
First creating a layout and marking it on the hillside, then putting in markers and digging the holes for the poles that will hold the structure up (this was not easy since we live in gold country and there is a lot of quartz and other rock).
And like Daedalus we understand the power of the sun and of the sea, and so we will use the power of the sun to create our vision of this beautiful gathering space and we will use the power of the water in the creation of an amazing pool.
