HEREFORD, ARIZ.—March was a good month for Patrick Dome and Karl Schmitt, co-owners of the 10-room Casa de San Pedro B&B in Hereford, Ariz. The 105-panel, 34-kilowatt, solar photovoltaic array positioned on the south side of their B&B supplied 125 percent of the electricity they needed for the month. The panels typically supply about 90 percent of the B&B’s electricity. Given its Arizona location, the Casa de San Pedro B&B is ideally located to take advantage of the sun’s power; the inn also uses a simple passive solar system (black piping) to heat water for the pool. Schmitt says that system, attached to the pool water filtration system, helps extend the pool’s season by two months—one month in spring and one in fall. The solar panels were expensive—$170,000—but Schmitt expects a return on investment of 4.5 years. Already, the B&B’s owners have obtained grants totaling $67,000 and may receive yet another for $42,000. The inn’s owners’ approach to sustainability appeals to their clientele—bird watchers and naturalists.
