Kathy’s Solar X Success Story

The Homeowner

Back in August of 2020, we had the pleasure of speaking with Kathy, a homeowner from Salut. Saint Marie who was interested in getting some more information about how solar could benefit her home. Our team diligently analyzed her power consumption and roof conditions and gave her a design that could offset more than 100% of the energy consumption with only 15 Q-Cell 430-Watt panels. This is Kathy’s Solar X success story.

The Process

Once we answered all the questions that Kathy had about her system, she submitted her solar application with us and we began the process of transitioning her home over to solar energy. From then on, our project management team took over to schedule the site inspection, obtain permits, approvals, and procuring materials for the install. We used 15 German Engineered Q-Cell Panels rated at 430 W capacity that was coupled to a 5 kW Huawei inverter for converting the DC power produced by the solar panels to AC. All the required materials such as racking, rails, and critter guards were ordered by our technical team to make sure they arrived on site before the installation.

The Equipment

We provide customers with 24×7 module-level enhanced PV performance monitoring and yield assurance through immediate fault detection with the use of a simple mobile application. No hardware or wiring is required to transmit data from the solar system to your mobile device. The app can help you visualize PV production and building consumption in addition to fault detection. Kathy, after taking a look at the production of the solar panels on her mobile delightfully states, “I have got the app on my phone now that I can track and now it’s showing me that so far in less than an hour I have made 2.17 kWh, I am so excited!”

The Benefits

Solar energy can be a lucrative option given that the prices of energy are rising constantly; it can be a lot more beneficial when your average monthly electricity bill is high. “The usage of my whole house during these three weeks in April has been 255 kWh and over that same period, I’ve made 377 kWh. So, I am well on my way to making what I am going to need for winter when my in-floor heating kicks in.”
