Quadra Island – Solar Grid-tie

“Small Planet installed a 4.4Kw grid-tied, ground mount solar PV system, with web monitoring for us. We are thrilled to have this system. We love the sturdiness in looks and function of this array. We really appreciate being able to easily push one button on the inverter to see how much energy the system is producing, at that particular moment. We find it highly convenient to be able to go on the dedicated web site to see the statistics about the production of this array. We enjoy being able to look at a whole year’s worth of use to see the economic benefits of our system. We feel very good about being able to harness the sun’s energy to meet our needs. Moreover, we want to underline some of the professional and personal qualities of the Small Planet Energy team: courteous, respectful, responsive, neat, and good humoured. So far, our experience with Small Planet has been a pleasure.”                                    ~ Jocelyne and Jen, Quadra Island


We were contacted by the owners to install the electrical system and provided a solar PV grid-tie system on the property they were developing. The goal was to drastically decrease the estate’s carbon foot print.  The goal was achieved.

The Solution

After a site assessment and a discussion with the owner about their preferences for array location, we decided to provide them with a 4.4kw ground mount array located in the north corner of the property. The first building constructed was a power shed where the services entered the property. The second thing constructed was the ground mount solar array.   This allowed all of the energy used to finish the development to be offset by their high-functioning solar grid-tie system.
