A large percentage of homes in BC are heated with Natural Gas or propane and there are some remote Northern communities that must burn diesel to produce electricity. Scientists say that burning these fuels produce carbon emissions that contribute to climate change.
Solar energy is one of the cleanest and lowest maintenance source of electricity that we know of today. A properly sized and configured system can be designed to be highly reliable while providing electricity for up to 30 to 40 years.
Solar fixes the energy costs and avoids utility rate increases. Some provinces like BC have a “net metering program” that offers to purchase the excess power from your system, creating an income stream.
