Clover Point Solar Home: 15kW Solar System is Victoria's Largest
Why Install a Solar Electric System in Victoria?
This innovative home showcases sustainable living, using recycled building materials and constructed for energy efficiency. The owners wanted to be as close to net zero electrical consumption as possible, and added a 15kW HES Solar Electric system to the roof in the summer of 2014.
The solar system system consists of 60 Hanwha 250W solar modules attached to the standing seam metal roof with S-5 clamps. The Fronius inverter packages offers high efficiency conversion. As part of BC Hydro's Net Metering Program, the system exports power to the utility during the day for a full credit to offset their purchases during the night. Online monitoring shows the daily solar production.
Production of +16,000 kWh per year, resulting in significantly lower utility costs for the next +30 years
|Year of Completion||2014|
|Key Feature||Net Metering provides a credit for solar power generated against BC Hydro consumption|
