Alberta is one of the sunniest places in the world so think of your solar panels as a main power source, instead of coal or gas, uses the sun to power your home. It is important to understand that most people with solar are still connected to the grid which means they always have access to power – even at night and in winter. When the sun is shining the panels power your home and when it’s really shining your home turns into a mini power plant.
Excess energy that your cells produce feed back into the grid and your bill is credited. Our goal, or more specifically your goal is to produce enough excess energy in the summer, when the sun is directly overhead, to cover your bill during the winter.
