This Saanich home has now significantly lower electrical bills with the addition of a 2.2kW solar electric system. As part of BC Hydro's Net Metering Program, the owners accumulate a credit for all electricity they produce during the day but did not need. The home uses its own energy from the roof first, and only buys power when the load exceeds the solar production.


20% of their electrical needs for the next 25 to 30 years. Production of +2,400kWh per year.
