This 10 kW microFIT installation in Flamborough features 40 Hanwha panels and SolarEdge inverters. The panels are positioned on the roof to allow the owner to expand the system in the future and cover the entire roof for the commercial FIT program or net-metering.
The commercial FIT program is for business buildings with larger arrays. We expect this program to begin taking new applications in the near future.
Net-metering is simply connecting a project to the grid to sell power at the “market rate” rather than at the FIT or microFIT rate. With hydro prices increasing steadily over the next 30 years it is starting to make sense to install solar just to offset your own consumption without requiring a premium to be paid for the power.
