BC Just Set a New Record for Solar EnergyPosted by b5baxter in News, on June 23, 2017
Yesterday BC set a new record for solar energy production. There were clear skies over much of the province on one of the longest days of the year. Many of our solar energy systems recorded the highest generation of the past 12 months. On-line real time monitoring and data logging allows us to view production and compare it with previous periods.
New solar energy systems are being installed on a regular basis in BC. So there are currently more systems online then have ever been before.
There is no way to track exactly how much energy solar contributed to BC’s energy needs. But based on the number of net-metered photovoltaic systems in the province we estimate that about 30 MWh was generated yesterday.
