Your Solar Options

The three most common types of solar energy systems
used for residential applications in Ontario are:




In general terms, Photovoltaic (PV) systems generate
electricity, solar water heaters preheat water for use in your
home and solar pool heaters preheat water for your pool.
In the process of going solar, each homeowner faces
different variables that infl uence their research and decision
making. Consider the type of system (or combination of
systems) that is best for you. Supportive community
buying clubs may also be an option for you to consider.

There are a number of other solar applications such
as solar air heating that are not yet widely available. In this
guidebook, we will focus on applications that are currently
the most commonly available and have the best potential
for residents of Ontario. See page 33 for additional
resources and buying guides that provide more detail
on the technologies themselves.
