Green Ontario Fund Announces Solar Rebates

The Green Ontario Fund has recently announced an upcoming round of rebates aimed at homeowners and businesses.

Some quick facts:
-The system must be mounted on a rooftop.
-The rebate is slated to go into action “at the end of July/beginning of August” according to GreenOn
-The rebate will only apply to NEW projects. any existing installations will not be accepted.
-The maximum AC size of the system shall not exceed 10kW for residential, and 500kW for commercial. It is unclear at this time if the DC portion can be oversized, or if a larger system could be installed with the rebate only applying to 10kW of it.
-To be eligible for the rebate, the system must be installed by a qualified contractor. The contractor qualification period is expected to begin in June. Quantum will be applying at the soonest possible date.
-For the storage rebate, it is not clear if that is usable capacity or total nameplate capacity of the batteries.

Lac Des Milles Lac First Nations Off Grid Community Cultural Centre

The Community Cultural Centre of the First Nations of Lac Des Milles Lac is in a remote location and has no access to conventional grid electricity. Previously, all electricity was supplied by a 78kW diesel generator which ran continuously. Quantum Renewable Energy was contracted by Jazz Solar Solutions to design and install a 93kW photovoltaic array with 300kWh of battery storage. Using this system, the Community Cultural Centre is now capable of being run almost entirely by solar energy, with a smaller diesel generator for periodic backup.

I have just completed the first year of solar pv operation at my place.

I am very pleased to report that my ten Silfab panels (280 watts) with Enphase micro-inverters have produced 2,200 kilowatt-hours. That provided the equivalent power to fully charge my Volt about 130 times. With an average range of 60 km per charge, that equates to 7,800 km per year driving on sunshine!

On the grid-connected Solaredge system, the annual generation was 7,800 kilowatt hours and my annual gross income was $3,100.

Steve – thanks for suggesting I enlist Rick to see if my place was suitable for solar pv when I was very dubious. Combined with the Volt purchase, this has allowed me to get to almost carbon-zero (85% of my driving is on electric).

Rick- thanks to you and your crew for an excellent install and operation. Please feel free to use my systems (and data) to promote future installs, including the pv + EV option your customers may consider.
