Gold Bridge Community Complex Solar Installation

Novo Solar recently completed a solar installation in the centre of Gold Bridge, BC at the Community Centre and Library. With a large SW facing metal roof sloped at about 25 degrees off horizontal, to which a solar PV array could be secured, Novo Solar Systemswas contracted to design and install a grid connected, solar panel array. The Novo Solar Team first installed the FastRack systems to the roof. Then we attached 24 photovoltaic panels and wired them up to provide 6kW of power. Once the system installation was complete, it was hooked up to the BC Hydro’s grid which allows for the Community Centre to feed any unused electricity back to the power grid. This is called Net Metering and  can help pay off your solar investment.


About the Bridge River Solar Installation Initiative

This Photovoltaic (PV) Renewable Energy Initiative is an innovative renewable energy project that includes three N. Combined, the three PV systems will deliver between 17,300 – 20,200 kilowatt hours of electricity per year, reducing grid electricity consumption and providing a hedge against rising electricity prices. Developing these small‐scale solar arrays will also raise awareness of sustainable energy practices and promote the viability of distributed solar energy systems as a means of enhancing the sustainability and resilience of rural and remote communities.
