Les Wold sits on Edmonton’s newest and 2nd largest residential solar-electric system as the final modules are installed. This 58-module system is designed to generate all of the house’s net electricity and heating energy over the year. All the little silver boxes mounted onto the rails are micro-inverters — each solar-electric module feeds its own inverter and together they act as a separate independent solar-electric system. This system is 12kW and is tied to the grid.
The deck which Les’ feet are on, but not visible in this picture, overlooks a beautiful park. Great for sipping a coffee and reading the newspaper while electricity is quietly generated behind him!
