Solar Power for Governments
As demand for energy increases, many public sector entities are looking for ways to meet this demand with clean, safe, and cost effective energy from renewable sources. Fortunately, the price of solar technology continues to drop, allowing central and local governments to discover new ways to improve operational efficiency and manage energy consumption. At Shift, we design-build solar photovoltaic (PV) systems to help governments across Canada improve local budgets, meet sustainability goals and enhance civic pride with solutions that are better for the environment than traditional energy sources.
How does solar work?
1. Solar Panels
The Sun provides a renewable source of clean, free energy
Converts the solar energy from DC into AC, energy to power your business
3. Electric Meter
Measures your electricity usage and excess electricity generation, reducing your electric bill and earning you credits.
4. System Monitoring
Our systems are equipped with lifetime system monitoring, granting you access to the real-time status of your energy from your smart-phone, tablet or computer.
How can solar benefit my community?
Reduce Greenhouse Emissions
Solar can help reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions by generating cleaner power using the sun. Replace old, expensive, and dirty diesel and propane fuel sources with longer-lasting, cleaner, solar power.
Maintenance Free Energy
Solar PV panels produce clean energy without the use of moving parts - no noise, no gearboxes, no belt drives, no turbines - making them virtually maintenance free.
Power Rural Areas
Get power where you need it most. You don’t need to rely fully on traditional energy infrastructure for your energy production needs. With solar, we can generate power where it may otherwise be challenging to do so.
Maximize Tax-Payer Value
Governments typically hold assets for a very long time. Pairing solar with these assets maximizes the return to tax-payers over the long term.
Be the change in the world that you want to see. Showcase sustainability leadership by installing cleaner energy solutions on government assets.
