Local Happenings...The Flying Goose Goes Solar

The Flying Goose Pub, formerly Four Corners, formally The Gray House has added solar panels to their building.  The Flying Goose brews their own ales and beer and grows hops in the backyard!  Now, they added 25 solar panels (500 square feet of solar collectors) to the back of the building.
They solar thermal system has a 800 gallon tank that preheats water for the brew cycles.

The pub is in the early stages of installing a photovoltaic system.   This effect creates voltage in the material inside the 126 panels that is generated by the sunlight.  It is expected to cut their electric bill in half.
