Annapolis Valley, NS

Sometimes a homeowner will put in a system, and then down the road find out they want to do some home renovations that require some rejigging of the original system.

This homeowner has a great setup, with an existing solar PV array as well as solar hot water. When time came to do some renovations, our team decommissioned the arrays so the homeowner could do his construction. When he was ready, we returned to install and commission the system.

We were able to modify one of the existing arrays (originally installed at a 90-degree angle on the front of the home) to an angled array to improve energy production. We also installed another array over the addition. The resulting expansion to the off-grid solar system has allowed for an increase in family comfort in this home.
