RENEWABLE ENERGY: CONNECTION OPTIONS
Other Government Programs: Net Metering allows you to interconnect your solar or wind system with the utility grid and make your own power. Electricity is blended without switching. If you have more electricity than you need the power will flow back into the utility lines. The utility meter records the number of kilowatt-hours sent back. When you need more power than you produce the meter records the power consumed. The bill is calculated on the net amount of kilowatt-hours consumed, which saves you money on electricity, transmission and debt retirement charges, which are tied to the kilowatt-hours consumed. Net Metering only allows for a credit on your account, which is carried over for up to one year. You will not be paid for any excess electricity.

Ten Kilowatt Solar Project:
A 10 kilowatt system would produce approximately 12,000 kilowatt hours per year in Sault Ste. Marie.
Estimated kilowatt hours produced is based on Natural Resources Canada weather data for the Sault Ste Marie Airport and the PVwatts1 estimator program. System efficiency, slope of the roof, site conditions, and weather variations will affect the performance and revenue produced.

Not all systems are created equal. They may look the same from the ground, and even work the same in the beginning. The difference is in the care we take in designing and installing your project. If you want it to last 20 years or more it requires quality equipment, attention to details in attachment and sealing, and offering supplemental protection from external threats.
