For new and existing residential properties.
Renewable solar energy is the best and most bountiful source of energy that is able to offset residential power consumption. For a homeowner, it presents a valid option to decrease the cost of your monthly hydro bill. It can also protect you from rising electricity bills in the future as well as reduce your carbon footprint.
Streamline Renewables can supply all of your grid-tied solar needs, for both new residential builds as well as existing residences. We streamline the process and manage every detail from conception, to design, installation and everything in between. Our solar systems are custom designed based upon your needs, budget, and schedule. Our exceptional team manages all permits and applications needed for your project.
Why you should install solar on your home:
1. Gain energy independence:
A solar PV system on your home can generate clean energy and savings on your electricity bills for 30+ years and earn you double on your initial investment over the systems life span.
2. Earn credits to decrease your bill:
When you generate excess energy that is fed back into the utility grid, your hydro provider allows you to earn credits through their net-metering program, helping you lower your utility bill.
3. Increase your property value:
A 2018 Kelowna study shows that your home’s property value increases by $6,000 for every 1kW of solar installed.
4. Contribute to a greener future:
When adding a renewable energy system to your home you are actively decreasing your carbon footprint. EV owners can have the cost of their car’s energy consumption covered by the solar panels on their property.
Rebates & Incentives for Homeowners:
Receive a provincial sales tax exemption on renewable energy system equipment.

A grid-tied solar PV system is mounted either on the roof or ground and creates electricity using the power of the sun and feeds the electricity directly into your house when required.
• A roof mounted solar PV system works best for buildings with good sun exposure and few obstacles or obstructions that would provide shade.
• A ground mounted solar PV system is ideal for larger energy consumption, and can be positioned to maximize solar energy generation.
When the solar PV system is not producing sufficient power, the home can draw power from the utility grid.
Any excess electricity generated by the solar PV system can be dispersed in 2 ways, it can be fed back into the utility grid for net-metering, or in some cases, it fed into an optional battery backup for later use in case of a power outage or when the solar PV system is no longer generating power
Net-metering is the process of selling your excess renewable energy generated by your solar PV system back to your hydro provider. In turn, your hydro provider will bill you credits that can be used towards your future grid-reliant energy use. It’s as if you were storing your excess solar generated electricity on the utility grid and it will be given back to you when you require its use. If you have leftover credits on your anniversary date, your hydro provider will pay you for the electricity at market price.
A backup generator can be also implemented in your residential grid-tied solar PV system. A backup generator can also be useful during a blackout period when no electricity is being produced by the solar PV system or the utility grid. With a backup generator, you won’t have to worry about power outage issues any longer.

Streamline Renewables solar installations include lifetime system monitoring. This monitoring will show you real-time power production of your system – right down to each individual solar module.
Monitoring can be access through your smart-phone, tablet, or computer. You can track power production down to a 5 minute cycle.
The BC Hydro Net-Metering account tracks all excess solar energy developed, and returns it to you in months where solar production slows, thus reducing your bill. No extra energy storage is necessary, however it is optional.
As a net metering customer, the electricity you generate is first used by your home or business. Your net consumption of electricity from BC Hydro is recorded under Inflow. When you generate more electricity than you consume, the excess generation is fed back to the grid and shown under Outflow.
Before DC electricity can be sent to the electrical panel it must be converted into AC (alternating current). AC power is used to supply electricity to all connected properties. In order to convert DC power from the solar PV cell into AC power that can be used, the electrical current must pass through an inverter. This is the final step before power can be transferred from the solar panels into your home for everyday use.
HYDRO METER & UTILITY GRID CONNECTION
BACKUP GENERATOR (OPTIONAL)
BATTERY BACKUP (OPTIONAL)
Optional deep cycle batteries could also be utilized in a residential grid-tied solar PV system to store excess DC electricity generated by the solar panels. The energy stored in the backup batteries can then be dispersed during a blackout period when no electricity is being produced by the solar PV system or the utility grid.
