Solar Electricity

Photovoltaic solar systems (commonly referred
to as PV systems) generate electricity that
can be used in a number of ways. In Ontario,
small-scale solar PV generators typically have
three options:

1. You can store the electricity you have generated
in batteries off-grid. These applications are often
most feasible for cottages or rural properties,
where it may be more economical to produce
power from renewable energy than to pay for
connecting to the grid; or

2. Through a net-metering agreement with
your local utility, you can receive a credit on
your utility bill for the extra electricity you are
providing to the grid; or

3. You can sell your electricity to the Ontario
Power Authority (OPA) for 80.2¢/kWh through
the Feed-in-Tariff program and earn approximately
$800 – $1,200 per year, based on a typical 1 kW
PV system.

A typical 1 kW system (approximately 5 panels)
can generate between 1,000 and 1,400 kWh in
one year, reducing your electrical demand by
10 to 15%.
