New Project at Inspiramental Central
We’re starting a new project here at Inspiramental Central. We have these two tanks, a trailer load of pipe, and something that hasn’t seen the light of day since the 2010 Darke County Fair. What do you suppose we’re up to now???
PROJECT UPDATE #2
This 3″ black tile came from Darke County Tile where the pic was taken. The Tanks came from Piqua Winnelson Co. these bits of trivia may come in handy along the way as we broadcast step by step the exciting new project at Robin’s and my home. A clue, were taking our biggest step yet in walking rather than stalking the talk of renewable energy…
PROJECT UPDATE #3
A solar Pathfinder, a measuring wheel, and an excavator from All Terrain Excavating, Inc.
PROJECT UPDATE #4
Reading the Pathfinder – open to the eastern horizon with a bit of shade after 3pm at equinox but then wide open to the west in summer. The apple tree will soon be pruned. This is a good spot for a couple of solar heat collectors.
PROJECT UPDATE #6
The first foundation with copper pipes. The forms are reusable, made by our manufacturing company, True South. http://truesouth.co/
PROJECT UPDATE #7a
The form comes off the foundation for the solar heat collectors. We’re making progress!
PROJECT UPDATE #7b
Another shot of taking the form off the foundation. As we mentioned before the forms are completely reusable meaning less gets thrown away in the process.
PROJECT UPDATE #8
Making progress! We’ve now attached the steel pole to the foundation. What will it be supporting? Find out in the coming days…
PROJECT UPDATE #9
The frame is now attached to the steel pole. We’re making progress..
PROJECT UPDATE #10
A Solar Heat Collector is up on the foundation and connected to the solar loop. This collector is made with evacuated tubes and piped with copper tubes to the heat exchanger in the basement. On the second pole we’re going for what we believe to be the most economical system on the market today, you’ll see!
