See when your energy use is at its peak
Utility Power User
Like most of the hard working people in Southern Alberta, you get up early, take a hot shower, eat breakfast and start the dishwasher on the way out the door.
Keep that schedule, and the solar energy you generate may be lost.
Solar Power User
Imagine scheduling the dishwasher to run mid-day, starting the clothes washer later in the afternoon, and unplugging the power bar.
Do this and you could very well see a significant reduction in utility-supplied power consumption.
Solar Power Cloudy Day
Southern Alberta skies are known to produce fiery red sunsets. While we get an enormous amount of sunlight compared to many Canadian communities, clouds do form.
On these days, power generation from solar is reduced.
Solar with Battery
What happens to the energy you generate once the sun goes down?
In many cases, it's lost to the grid, at lower rates that you pay, unless you have a battery system installed of course.
Normal Energy Usage
Most homeowners use the bulk of their high-energy appliances in the early morning or after work when solar energy generation is at it’s lowest. Thus, they will be drawing energy from the grid rather than the solar system.
Energy Useage Shift
Smart solar owners are shifting the bulk of their high-energy appliance usage to mid-day (setting timers on dishwashers, laundry, etc.) This easy change means drawing the bulk of their energy from their own solar system.
