Located just 30 minutes south of Ottawa’s downtown core, this solar system in Greely Ontario is simple but also very effective. The residential unit sits on top of a roof that is perfectly south-facing, making it more than perfect for solar panels. Even during the peak of winter where the sun comes out only for a few hours a day, the pitch and position of the roof allow the solar panels to gather plenty of sunlight.
Producing almost 20,000 kilowatt-hours of renewable energy every year, the system will offset the homes’ energy costs by up to 70% on an annual basis. This will save the homeowners hundreds of dollars on their electricity bills every month. The 52 panels were installed during the late but still brutal stages of winter 2021 by the Execon Roofing and Solar team, this was one of many solar and roofing jobs accomplished by the team during the winter season.
