Commercial & Municipal Solar PV Systems
Commercial Rooftop systems typically operate in the 100 kW to 500 kW range, limited by available space and capacity at the grid connection point. The electricity produced, flows into the grid as far as the Ontario Power Authority is concerned. In reality, the connection between the new meter measuring your electrical production and the meter measuring your consumption for your building, is a short one. The "green" power produced by the solar panels is typically consumed locally, with any surplus feeding additional nearby customers on the grid. You however, get paid for every kilowatt hour of electricity produced BEFORE any power is consumed.
Here's a 10kw flat rooftop system:
