A life reliant on solar panels is tough, but Laurie Gallant and Bill Crosson have it figured out

 

Crews install solar panels on a house as part of Solartility’s pilot project in Calgary in an undated handout photo. The company offers its residential solar clients access to bi-directional interval meters, meaning they can sell the electricity they generate onto the grid at times of peak demand only, maximizing the financial benefit.

‘Virtual power plant’ model could convince more Albertans to switch to solar

Model allows people to choose when they use their solar power, including during peak usage times
