Let's talk about making legal places for Tiny Homes. Tiny homes offer another way of addressing affordable housing and homelessness. These discussion areas provide a forum where we can develop the ideas and strategies that can make Tiny Towns a reality. To become part of the discussion simply Join the Association (it's Free) and then get into the conversation on topics that interest you.
I checked out the links and sent a message to Bluewater Energy to see what they would suggest. Each of our PODs is planned to have a 43' x 40' enclosed/covered common area which will also act as the solar collection and storage facility for the PODs solar power.
I'm looking forward to seeing what they recommend as the EnerygySage website suggests the Tesla Solar roof would cost 33-96% more than traditional solar and produce less energy.
I also spoke with Mike at SOLBright and there is no issue with solar panels in the winter beyond snow stick.
Glad you liked it, I’ve been furthering my google searches a bit more on solar shingles.
I found a little bit more info on the Tesla solar system, I’ve established that they are working with Panasonic and Elon Musk to improve the system.
I found this website with a little more info on the Tesla solar shingle system.
In our current POD design, we have planned solar panels on the common room, with the expectation that they will collect solar power to be shared by the members of that POD. The Tesla Powerwall is something that we are very interested in for the POD power storage and we will have to see how their solar shingle power production compares to traditional solar panels. The fact that we are designing the common room roof for solar means that we can use the best resource to maximize production.
Keep us posted on new ideas that we can incorporate into the town design for the benefit of all tiny homeowners that will live in a Tiny Town.
