Take that BC Hydro
Solar saves you money! This 2200 square foot house in BC has a solar array composed of 18 modules. During the month of May it used only 39 kWh from the grid, and its total bill from February to June is $186. The owners will likely not purchase electricity until October or November but by then a rolling credit of surplus production can be drawn upon. This is the beauty of net metering.
This house does not have access to natural gas and heats with electric mini-split heat pumps and uses electricity for hot water. It also charges an electric car!
