Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is energy derived from a natural source that can not be depleted.

Why go Renewable?

The major benefit of renewable energy is that it is renewable, therefore it's a sustainable source of energy that can not run out. Renewable energy technology generally requires little to no maintenance and being renewable is generally inexpensive compared to traditional energy sources. Importantly, renewable energy produces to little to no waste products such as carbon dioxide or other chemical pollutants, which benefits public health, our environment and the climate.

Forms of Renewable Energy

Solar Energy

Solar energy is energy created by the heat and light of the sun. Solar power is produced when this energy is converted into electricity or used to heat air, water, or other substances.

Solar photovoltaic technology converts sunlight directly into electricity using photovoltaic (PV) cells. The solar PV cells are combined in panels. They can be put on rooftops, integrated into building designs and vehicles, or installed by the thousands across fields to create large-scale solar power plants.

How Solar Works

As the sun rises, your system begins producing power. When you're consuming more power than your solar is producing, you may still draw power from the grid.

During the day, your system can generate more power than you are consuming. This extra power goes back to the grid where it can be used by your neighbours.

At night, while you're not producing solar energy, your home gets its power from the grid.
