Solar Powered WebCast

Webcasting images with the power of the sun — oh yeah. The Vancouver Renewable Energy Cooperative (VREC) will be doing a Solar Powered Webcast tomorrow. The video cameras and computer at the broadcast site will be solar powered. They will be webcasting live the official launch of their first project. This project is also one of the first grid-tie solar photovoltaic systems in the city of Vancouver. It will be directly connected to BC Hydro´s grid. This means that customer will be paid for the excess power they generate and if they need more power they can still purchase it from the grid. The SPEC system is a 1.4 kilowatt (kW) system, and it will produce approximately 1.5 megawatt hours (MWh) annually. :: Vancouver Renewable Energy Cooperative
