Greenbrook, a BC Housing social housing development in Surrey, British Columbia, will receive a grid-tie solar power system from Carmanah Technologies Corp. The development will be equipped with a grid-tie solar power system designed to provide 10% of the development's annual electricity requirements to assist with common-area loads, such as area lighting and air-source heat pumps.
Valued at approximately $1.34 million in total, the photovoltaic system will be installed in stages by Carmanah Technologies under contract with Yellowridge Construction Ltd., with completion scheduled for mid-2010.
With a combined capacity of approximately 139 kW, the site-wide renovation project represents Carmanah's largest grid-tie project to date, and Western Canada's largest solar grid-tie project, Carmanah says.
