Harnessing the Power of the Sun

Did you know that every hour more energy from the sun hits the earth than the world uses in an entire year? Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems absorb this energy and convert it into electricity. This electricity can be used to power homes and businesses.

Sizing a PV system to meet your needs is an important first step in determining your overall investment and payback. Your solar contractor will be able to assist you in sizing your system appropriately. A system that is too small will not meet all your electricity needs. While a system that is too big will be more expensive, and may lead to a larger proportion of electricity exports, which will impact the payback on your investment. Your current and future energy goals are key factors to consider. This step is a great time to consider improving your energy efficiency, or adding a heat pump or electric vehicle charger.
