PV Solar System – Apartment Building

Project Details

  • Location: Antigonish, NS
  • Industry: Commercial
  • Project Status: Completed August 2019

In August 2019, the largest PV Solar system in Antigonish was installed on a commercial building at 227 Main St. The building, owned by Issam Kadray, is home to several businesses, including an optical center and a tanning centre.

The PV (photovoltaic) solar system installed on the flat roof of the building is made up of 120 solar panels, each with power output ratings of 345 watts. The 120 solar panels create a system capable of producing 41 kilowatts of electricity.

Photovoltaic (PV) solar uses the photons of light to create electricity. Sunlight is the most effective form of light to generate electricity. In the Main Street building, the power goes directly into the grid of the building, not into a battery. If more energy is produced than is used by the building, the energy goes back for a credit.
