Photovoltaic (PV) systems are used to convert sunlight into electricity. They are a safe, reliable, low-maintenance source of solar electricity that produces no on-site pollution or emissions. PV systems incur few operating costs and are easy to install on most Canadian homes. PV systems fall into two main categories: off-grid and grid-connected. The grid refers to the local electric utilitys infrastructure that supplies electricity to homes and businesses. Off-grid systems are installed in remote locations where there is no utility grid available.
It makes good economic sense to build sustainably. In the short term, energy efficient upgrades can provide significant operation cost savings. In the long term, as energy costs continue to escalate, building anything other than sustainably will not be economically feasible. Houses utilizing sustainable design and construction strategies will become increasingly more desirable and valuable than conventionally built structures.
