Gulf Islands Operations Centre
Carmanah worked with The Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) to design and supply a 7kW grid-tie solar power system for the Parks Canada's Gulf Island National Park Reserve's new headquarters, located in Sidney, British Columbia.
The grid-tie system was installed in October 2005, and, upon completion, the building received LEED Certification. This distinguishes building projects that have demonstrated a commitment to sustainability by meeting higher performance standards in environmental responsibility and energy efficiency.
The system includes 42 of Carmanah's SQ175 solar modules and three Fronius 2500 grid tie inverters. The grid-tie system is designed to provide PWGSC with approximately 10 percent of the new building's power load.
