Judy Wicks House Tour

All-Electric Open House

Thursday, May 19th, 5:30 - 7:30 PM
Home of Judy Wicks, Fitler Square
(Address will be sent to participants once you have made a reservation)


After seeing the film Groundswell and traveling to Dimock, PA to see the effects of fracking first hand, Judy made the decision to stop buying natural gas and transition her home to 100% renewable electricity.  Her solar array produces the majority of her electricity and the rest is purchased via the grid from a local solar supplier, Community Energy. The contractors Judy worked with will be present to answer your questions. The tour will show the solar array, electric heat pump, high-efficiency electric water heater and induction store top.  Beer and pretzels will be served.

Anyone wishing to ride in together from Phoenixville, please call Joel (610-220-6172) or Rodney (610-291-0937).

Contractors at the Open House:
Micah Gold-Markel, owner, Solar States – solar installer
Kenny Grono, owner, Buckminister Green – green general contractor
Chris Wilson, Unique Indoor Comfort Heating & Cooling – heat pump and water heater
Robert Monk, electrician for induction stove top and upcoming electric vehicle charger
