Frankfort-area 2014 Solar Tour/Open House

  • 04 Oct 2014
  • 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • Heart & Soul Farm, 1039 Sharp Rd, Stamping Ground KY 40379

The open house tour of Heart and Soul Farm features a solar PV-powered irrigation system installed by Earth Tools, Inc. of Owenton, Kentucky. The irrigation system uses a 590 watt solar PV array to power a submersible pump in an old well. Water from the well is pumped uphill to a 2,000 gallon cistern. Water from the cistern is then fed by gravity downhill to the garden.

Note: if coming via Rt368, the road sign at the correct intersection reads "Oakland Branch" at that point, but later becomes Sharp Rd.
