This 130 year old adobe white stucco, two cable pioneer home, just across
the street from the Brigham Young Home, was built by Anthony W. Ivins
and is one of the original homes of St. George. The 4.8 kW system
mounted on the garage provides more than enough energy for the needs of
the Gardners, and they enjoy extremely favorable utility bills.

The Donaldson family installed this 3 kW solar PV system to supply some of their
home energy needs. They also made their home energy efficient, with ceiling insula-
tion (R51 blown-in), wall insulation (R23 blown-in plus foam with reflective backing –
net is approximately R27), an efficient A/C unit (SEER 16), and Low E Windows.
With energy efficiency and renewable energy, the Donaldson family has reduced
their power bills and overall energy footprint.

City of St. George Net Metering Incentive Program


The City of St. George Energy Services Department has implemented a net metering program #2 - Westminster College - 1840 S 1300 E, SLC
that provides a rebate to customers who install solar photovoltaic systems on their homes or
businesses. Rebate amounts vary for residential and commercial customers. These rebates are Solar PV, Grid-Tie, Net Meter

This 8 kilowatt solar PV system was made possible with a grant from the Blue Sky Renewable
Energy Program. The panels produce enough electricity to power the equivalent of almost
three typical Utah homes and will keep 14.7 tons of carbon dioxide out of the air each year -
equivalent to removing three cars from the road each year.

The project is part of Westminster’s larger effort to become a leader in environmental sus-
tainability and will serve as a vital education tool for students, faculty, and the community.

The main system of the Andrade solar heated home was installed by In Hot
Water beginning in May of 2002. At that time 8 solar thermal collectors
were put in for radiant floor heating and hot water. The savings were so
significant that, coupled with the current tax incentives, Joe and Barbara
decided to capitalize on the savings and installed 8 solar PV panels in 2006.
