Can you harness the power of the sun to save money?

Yes! And thanks to one Comox Valley business, you even combine your purchasing power to save on installation.

Just ask the participants from last year’s Bulk Buy Program, hosted by solar contractor Hakai Energy Solutions and the Comox Valley Regional District.

The residents who took part in the successful inaugural bulk buy solar program saved over $2,200 each by combining their purchasing power for their solar energy systems, says Jason Jackson, owner of Hakai Energy Solutions.

And their energy savings?

Participants have generated more than 100,000 kWh of clean renewable energy in the last six months and saved over $12,000 on their Hydro bills!

Store excess generated power to use when you need it

“A lot of people in the Comox Valley believe BC Hydro doesn’t allow solar energy systems to be connected to the grid, but this is not correct,” says Hakai’s Mark Tizya. “BC Hydro’s net metering program not only allows people to connect to the grid, but also allows you to feed your excess power to the grid and store it, in the form of a credit, for winter.”

“When your power consumption increases in the winter and your solar production is reduced, you simply draw from the credit accumulated during the summer months; if your system is large enough, your credit will cover the entire winter,” Tizya says. “It’s an amazing program and Hakai does all the paperwork to get you connected.”

A viable option for the Comox Valley

Common misconceptions about solar energy include that the Valley isn’t sunny enough. Not so. “We have some very good candidates here,” Jackson says.

As the CVRD encourages people to reduce power consumption with solutions such as new windows and sealing air leaks, and replace wood-burning heat sources with cleaner, efficient options, Hakai complements these choices with one allowing your home to produce its own energy!

“Hakai is committed to making the Comox Valley the No. 1 region for clean energy adoption,” Jackson says.

To do that, Hakai Energy Solutions is offering their Bulk Buy Program again this year.
