Sutton Brown
Class of 1976
who owns Brown's and Hardware store is an old-time country store with newfangled ideas. While the groceries are fresh and up to date, the same can't be said for the items for sale in the hardware section of the store. "We have old fuses and stuff that you just can't find at Walmart," said Jonathan Kent. Much of the hardware in stock was designed to fit plumbing and electrical fixtures from the 1920s and 1930s. Many of the store's customers travel from North Carolina and Virginia to purchase hard-to-find items. That includes apple butter kettles and two-man apple peelers and all sorts of unusual gadgets. While the inside of the hardware section of the store looks like it is still the 1950s, the store's roof is definitely 21st century. Row after row of new solar panels crowd the roof of the hardware section and the nearby warehouse. The panels have been installed over the past three weeks by one man, Josh Guy of Mountaineer Electric of Vilas, N.C. Guy finished the installation Tuesday. The panels should be connected to the grid by the end of this week. As a result of Guy's installation and the vision of store owner Sutton Brown, the old-timey store now has bragging rights in Carter County. Its solar panels can generate 44 kilowatts of electricity from the sun. That is remarkable because when the system is connected to the grid this week, Ken Markland of the Elizabethton Electric Department said Brown's output will be three times larger than Security Federal Bank, which produces 15 kilowatts from its panels. Guy said the installation of the wiring for the panels was difficult because the store and other electric customers were on an old 120/240 volt three-phase delta line, but Markland said it was not a problem for Elizabethton Electric engineers, and they worked with Guy on the connections. Markland said the system will have its own meter to measure how much power the panels are producing. The readings from that meter will be subtracted from the amount of electricity the store consumed each month. If the store used more electricity than the panels produced, the electric bill will be the reduced figure. If the panels produced more electricity than Brown's consumed, the store will not have to pay anything for that month and credit will be applied to the next month's bill. At the end of the year, the meter readings will be added up and if there is a credit of more than $200, Markland said Brown will receive a refund check. Guy said there are grants available for the installation of solar panels. He said Brown's was unable to qualify for a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture because Hampton was not considered rural enough at the time of the grant application. He said that has now changed and the USDA now considers Hampton to be rural, and its grants can be awarded to homes and businesses in the Hampton area. Markland said that even with grants and Tennessee Valley Authority incentives, solar panels have a long return on investment, but that is not the main concern of most people installing them. "It is not really a business investment. You can't use them to make a profit, but they can reduce your carbon footprint," Markland said. That means that Brown's can have a big impact on the market for 1930s implements, while its carbon footprint leaves a small impact on the environment. (Article on Facebook, sent in by Ed Best)
