Earth Day April 22, 2013. On this day it is a good time to think about what have your done to take better care of the Earth. I would like to walk through what Renewable Energy NW, LLC (RENW) has accomplished this last year:
Installed 3 dairies with solar thermal applications for heating process water for clean up. 96 Solar Thermal Panels offsetting 192,ooo pounds of carbon pollution or the equivalent of removing 96 – Honda 4 cylinder cars from the road, each year.
Home installations most of which included a 2 panel install heating the hot water and assisting comfort heating. These solar thermal installations have provided family wage jobs and local spending for an Idaho local business.

I want to thank all of my customers for making a choice to save money and do something to make all of our lives more sustainable.
Renewable Energy NW, LLC (RENW) completed our largest installation to date for a Dairy Farm and Calf Barn in the Magic Valley in Idaho. The installation was 48 solar thermal panels capable of creating 1.6 million BTU’s of energy on a clear winter day and over 2 million BTU’s per day in the summer time.
The installation was on roof peak which ran N and S. We installed 12 panels on the east side of the Calf barn and 12 panels on the west side of the roof. The panels were installed as their own system on each side of the roof. The panels are facing south for maximum collection of the radiation. This allows the east roof section to start up with the first line of site of the sun and then the west side when the sun progresses and hits that side of the roof. Each 12 panel section has its own pump and solar controller to manage the collection of energy from the sun. This same set up was also installed on the roof of the dairy barn with 24 panels total split into two sides.
The system is working well and capturing free energy from the sun.
Renewable Energy NW, LLC completed another “affordable solar solution” for a great family in New Plymouth ID. The project included an energy efficient American Standard air to air heat pump, a variable speed blower, an efficient media air filter system, a humidifier, an on-demand electric hot water heater and a two panel solar thermal system for heating the hot water and assisting on comfort heating.
The complete system is saving the customers more than 50% on their utility costs for their home. The air quality is significantly better with a consistent humidity and clean filtered air.
This install is a great example of a holistic renewable energy solution that will provide affordable, efficient and clean comfort for you home for years and years.
