2204 Flagler Pl NW on 2009 Metro DC Tour of Solar Homes and Buildings


From Bloomingdale resident Jeff Hayward:



I was hoping that you could post information inviting people to the solar energy open house we are holding at 2204 Flagler Place NW as part of the 2009 Metro DC Tour of Solar Homes and Buildings.

Last year, we installed a small-scale system of photovoltaic panels on the roof of our 1909 rowhouse, which provides about 50% of our electric energy. This system was 50% funded by a grant from the DC government as part of a renewable energy demonstration program. We made a commitment to offer demonstrations to our community of this system, so that others could learn about how they might generate solar energy in their home or business, too.

Our Flagler Place rowhouse will be featured on the second day of the Solar Tour 2009, from 11 am to 5pm on Sunday October 4th. We’d be pleased to welcome our neighbors to come drop by and talk about renewable energy. Here is the link to the Solar Tour:

In addition, the organization I work for, Rainforest Alliance did an interview with me for our on-line journal The Canopy and featured 15 photos of our house with explanatory captions. Neighbors can view our solar system and the step-by-step installation by following this link:

People are welcome to call or write for more information. 202- 294- 7008.

  1. Open houses that give people ideas on how to green their houses are great--hopefully this one will encourage more Washington DC residents to add solar panels.
