project:HOMES with IPS of VA One Week Home Build 2018
In mid-July, Integrated Power Sources of Virginia Inc. partnered with project:HOMES and Altria to rapidly construct a home in the City of Richmond for a local military veteran.
After preparations were made in the preceding week with the City for permitting and inspection, volunteers and contractors worked around the clock on July 16th and 17th to construct the home in Barton Heights. The IPS of VA team added green-energy solar PV capability to the home with a 3kW, 10 panel system using microinverters connected to the utility grid through net metering.
We were extremely excited to be part of this community project and are happy to report along with the rest of the project:HOMES team that things went smoothly along the rapid timeline. See the above video for a time-lapse of the project from July 16-17th. Thanks to Tom Stiles of Skyshots for the video.
