Properly designed Grid-Tie Systems can have a positive effect on your utility bill! Generating your own power with a solar PV system is now an affordable option. Solar PV prices have now dropped to a level that payback for your system could be realized in as little as 8 years depending on system size, southern exposure and utility price increases.
With both major utility companies, BC Hydro & Fortis Power, adopting the two tiered rate schedule it makes sense to include solar in your energy plan. Most systems are mounted flush on the roof. This requires good southern exposure and enough roof space available for the panels. Each kilowatt of solar PV requires approximately 100 square feet of space.
A solar electric system can last upwards of 30 years with little or no maintenance. This type of system will add value to your home if you ever decide to move.

Modern Renewable Energy Grid-Tie Systems
Today’s grid-tie systems are approximately 95% efficient with almost all the power generated being utilized in your home and any excess being sent to the grid. Micro hydro systems are available, however they are not listed in our catalogue as each is site specific.
Before venturing into a grid-tie system, please be sure to check with your local utility for programs and regulations.!!
Every watt-hour your system delivers is a watt-hour you don’t have to buy from your utility company!
