Solar Panel Enclosures & Photovoltaic Systems

TEVELEC seeks to continue to be leader in the wire and cable distribution. We now stock a full line of photovoltaic products for installers who are looking for photovoltaic cable (PV Wire), MC4 connectors, strain relief connectors, wire & cable, wire management, bare copper, battery cables, portable power cables, lead wire, ground lugs, clamps, split bolts and cable ties.

New technology presents itself with new safety challenges. Tevelec is closely following and adhering to (ESA) Ontario Electrical Safety Code. Bulletins are being issued in regards to all aspects of components and installation of Photovoltaic Systems.

The Province of Ontario, through the Green Energy Act, is promoting the installation of Renewable Energy production systems, including Photovoltaic (PV) panels on residential and commercial properties. The MicroFIT program is one of the first steps to creating green jobs in Ontario and closing the coal-fired generating plants. The initial Feed-In Tariff (FIT) rate will compensate homeowners 80.2 cents for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) produced by a PV system up to 10 kilowatts in size. The contract with the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) will guarantee this rate for 20 years. This represents a very low risk investment opportunity for long term investors who install quality systems designed to withstand 20 years of our harsh climate.

Rising Interest in Renewable Energy

According to the OPA, 510 projects were approved, covering 120 communities. The undertaking is quite significant, as the total capacity for all approved projects is expected to reach 112 Megawatts, enough to provide electricity to thousands of homes around Ontario.

New Opportunities for Solar Panel Installation

The upsurge in renewable energy interest projects is also expected to give rise to new possibilities, particularly in terms of employment and business opportunities. Locals can expect to participate in these projects as service providers and contractors, assuming they receive adequate training and certification. Ontario law, requires that local technology and labour be used in at least 50% of new solar developments in the future. Thanks to Ontario's aggressive feed-in-tariff initiative, homeowners can potentially earn money from power they feed into the grid from solar panels set up on their property with an estimated payout between 8 to 10 yrs. Green is in, but typically comes at a high initial cost. Thanks to incentives like these, it is little wonder why so many are exploring solar energy classes and DIY solar panel installation kits.

Solar Panel Installation: Utility Power Decentralization

The OPA’s promotion of renewable energy installation on homes, offices, and business facilities introduces the decentralization in which consumers of electricity also become major contributors. Membership not only empowers the individual and commercial owners of these system’s but it also lightens the load for utility companies as they become better equipped to handle major fluctuations in demand.
