Solar Electric Systems for Homes

Sustainable Living Show on WMNF 88.5 FM, August 24, 2009

Our first guest was Jamie Trahan, a researcher at USF’s Clean Energy Research Center, CERC. She’s organizing Tampa Bay’s first ‘Solar Tour’ of homes and businesses. This will take place October 3, and you can contact Jamie at

Next we talked to a Hillsborough County resident who’s starting a solar installation project on his home using the southern, eastern and western portions of his roof to glue on his Thin-film Solar Modules. Pat’s using two power inverters to handle the different loads.

John Gambil, with HotWire Enterprises, and Chip and Delores Kelly, with CD Solar, joined the rest of the program talking about their solar homes and the work they do. They can be reached at
