P.E.G. Solar Portfolio
View past solar installations from satisfied customers in Virginia, North Carolina, Delaware and Maryland.
Steve Brook – Kill Devil Hills, NC.
P.E.G. completed this installation in December of 2015. We used (36) Axitec Solar 310W panels and all premium components from Schneider Electric Conext XW+ line. Located in Kill Devil Hills, NC, this 100% Off-Grid home was the first of its kind in the OBX area.
The homeowner, Mr. Steve Brook, had a goal of being 100% energy independent. He chose P.E.G. to design & install a solar PV system adequate to power all modern amenities without relying on the local electric utility.
Appliances at the home include LED lighting, central heating and air conditioning, boat lift, home theatre, washer/dryer, and other residential appliances.

The Jones’ – Charlotte, North Carolina
7.3kW Hybrid Solar Power System w/ Generac 15kW Generator
The Jones’ live in rural Union County, North Carolina, about 25 miles from downtown Charlotte. Mr. Jones wanted a solar power system that would provide both monthly bill reduction AND a secure power supply for emergency backup. The search for a qualified solar installer started close to home. Local solar companies in western North Carolina tried to convince Mr. Jones to purchase a grid-tied only solar power system with no battery backup. Although such a system would help lower his electric bill, it would not help the family survive during a utility power outage.

John Vandermyde – Outer Banks, NC
John Vandermyde and his family live in an exceptional home on the Atlantic coast in Outer Banks, North Carolina. Desiring to be a better steward of the planet, John decided to go solar for his home’s energy needs. After interviewing two other solar companies, John selected P.E.G. to install his grid-tied solar power system.
PV System Designer Barton Schafer was faced with numerous challenges during the design phase of the project. The owner’s desire was to have an aesthetically pleasing appearance that maximized solar energy production in spite of limited roof space and shading issues. The Vandermyde’s home has a steep Dutch hip roof with multiple skylights and vent pipes that created obstacles for efficient solar panel mounting. Adding to the challenge was a large nearby pine tree that cast a shadow on one quarter of the roof.

John D. – Richmond, Virginia
A recent customer, “John Doe” for purposes of confidentiality, and his family reside on a 40-acre farm about 45 miles from downtown Richmond, Virginia. John is committed to ensuring the safety and security of his family. He is also a steadfast believer who wants to be able to help others in his community during a time of crisis.
The Does’ emergency planning includes making provision for both short-term power outages caused by severe weather and long-term power outages caused by cyber attack, financial crisis, or civil unrest. In addition to having a deep supply of food and water, John wanted to own the means of producing his own electricity. He already owned a gasoline generator, but was concerned about the availability of fuel during a long-term crisis. What he really wanted was a solar power system that would help reduce his monthly electric bill and provide secure off-grid power to run all of his essentials during a utility outage.

The Akhouri’s – Fairfax County, VA
8.1kW Hybrid Solar Power System w/ Generac 15kW Generator
The Akhouri’s recently built a new home in Fairfax County, Virginia, about 25 miles from downtown Washington, DC. Their goal was to be as energy-efficient as possible with the ability to be completely off-the-grid one day. The home design includes multiple geothermal heat pumps, 2 GE GeoSpring heat pump water heaters, solar attic fans, and premium insulation. The Akhouri’s selected P.E.G. to install the solar PV system, solar attic fans, and backup generator.
P.E.G. designed a 8,100W solar power system using (30) Silfab Solar 270W all-black solar panels and the Schneider Electric Conext XW+ hybrid inverter system. For secure off-grid power, P.E.G. included an 860 amp-hour deep cycle battery bank using 16 Crown Commercial deep cycle batteries. As an added layer of protection, the system designer incorporated a Generac EcoGen™ 15kW standby generator. The EcoGen™ allows the Akhouri’s to quickly recharge their solar batteries during periods of high demand or prolonged overcast weather. The system design provides the best of both worlds: energy savings and energy security.
The Akhouri’ own their energy. Be Empowered.Portfolio Details
