Over the past several years, solar panels have continued to grow in popularity. In Kelowna, we receive an average of nearly 2,000 hours of sunshine each year, making the Okanagan region one of the best placed to invest in solar energy for your home or business.
If you are considering solar energy as a means of generating electricity for your home, you will need to consider your location and viable collection areas. For many homes, your solar panels may be installed on the roof of your building, garage, or over your deck. Other locations may include a hillside, tower, or any large, clear area which is close to your current power source. Ideally, your solar panels should be aligned towards the south, with an unobstructed line of view to the sun throughout the year.
You will also need to consider the size and efficiency of your system, as well as your budget. Not all solar panels are created equal, but we can help you determine the best solar panel system for your needs.
