Bluewater Energy has been designing and installing solar systems since 2007, and to date we have installed over 10MW of solar energy. Below under demo projects we present a sampling of projects of varying size that highlight the effectiveness of solar photovoltaic systems in Ontario. Follow the link to each project for more detailed information, and be sure to click on the ‘Go to Live System‘ link to view the current and historical power production of each facility.
Solar Photovoltaics (Solar PV) is technology that converts sunlight into electricity. Simply put, solar PV cells are made of layers of semiconductor materials similar to those used in a standard computer chip. When sunlight hits the surface of the solar cell, solar energy knocks electrons loose from their atoms, allowing them to flow, which produces electricity when the circuit is completed. As long as the sun shines, electrons will flow, and solar cells will produce electricity. The effectiveness of a solar PV system depends primarily on the amount of direct sunlight solar cells receive, with a number of other secondary factors that can positively or negatively affect performance. To demonstrate the capabilities of solar in Ontario, we have provided some case studies here of Bluewater Energy installed projects, from a small residential system to a large scale commercial project.

Bluewater Energy offers a no-cost lease option to home and business owners that qualify. This financial package does not tie up your home equity or home line of credit, and can be taken advantage of without putting any money down. The solar generated revenue covers your lease payments, and after the lease term you own the system. From that point on, the money goes directly into your pocket. Call or e-mail us for details. This is truly a free solar option.
