At the Private residence of Dan and Carol Catlin in Mesa. They have an amazing home to share:
"We collect rainwater to help our citrus trees. We have raised and sunken vegetable gardens, a carob tree (we host harvests!), a simple compost system, and a fish tank with mature koi and other fish varieties. We hope to convert to a hydroponic system in the future and raise tilapia to harvest and use the tank's water to water the gardens.
"We have 4 small photovoltaic (PV) systems using 4 different types of inverters and 2 types of PV panels (4 different manufacturers for the panels). The 4 systems add up to over 15 KW of rated power. We also have a solar water heater and solar clothes dryer (clothes line!). The home includes a heated exercise pool and hot tub. These act as emergency water supplies as well as provide enjoyment.
"Our home is all electric (no natural gas) and for 6 years now we have generated more electricity than we use during the year."
