Which areas does Small Planet Energy provide service?
We service the southern half of the west coast of British Columbia including Vancouver Island and the adjoining island communities, as well as the Lower Mainland and the Sunshine Coast.
What is renewable energy?
Renewable energy is energy that comes from sources that are naturally replenished such as sun, wind and water.
Is solar energy a good choice in south-western BC?
If the power goes out and I have a grid-tie system, will I also lose power?
Not necessarily. Grid-tie inverters do go down if they lose the grid signal but if you invest in a battery backup system you will have power while the rest of your neighbourhood will be in darkness.
