How Does Solar PV Work?
The solar panels actually convert the sun’s light into direct current (DC) electrical energy which is then converted to alternating current (AC) that can be supplied to your local distribution company’s network.
The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) is offering a Feed-in-Tariff program. It is a government initiative that guarantees a specific rate that your local power company will pay for renewable energy that you generate. The microFIT program applies for systems up to 10kW, either roof or ground mounted while the general FIT program has provisions for up to 500kW installations.
