By doing this, Matthews showed that solar system designers don’t have to wipe 20% of annual production away because of snowfall. Instead, they can plan for only a 3% reduction in electricity generation!
Tim, and his team, which included the City of Edmonton and Solar Energy Society of Alberta, illuminated this, and our solar industry can take this info to the bank!
And what's more, you don’t have to climb onto your roof to clear the solar modules in winter. With a grid-tied solar photovoltaic system, your time is better spent bundled up by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and a blanket. Rest assured your solar array is still working well all winter to produce your clean, limitless and sustainable energy.
If you don’t have a solar array yet, why not join in the fun? Over 600 homes in Edmonton now have solar arrays, thanks to innovative programs from the Province and the City.
That means right now you can get about 30% off the cost of your installation, while rebates last! The courageous solar installers won’t mind that you call them in the dead of winter. Learn more, and go solar today!
