Solar panels boost business case for electrifying multi-unit low-rise housing

Case study

Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems can improve building resilience, balance electricity demand when well-integrated with the electrical grid, and enable high-performance buildings to reach a net-zero-energy target. Solar PV can also improve the business case for energy retrofits.

This case study illustrates how integrating solar PV can improve the business case for retrofitting a low-rise multi-unit residential building (MURB) in B.C.
