Courtney Schappert and his father approached Solar Manitoba to install roof mounted solar photovoltaic systems. Courtney’s father Robert lives in Shellmouth, Manitoba close to Riding Mountain National Park and Solar Manitoba is proud to have also installed his energy system. The 8.25kW roof mounted solar installation pictured here is nestled deep in the Winnipeg neighborhood of south St. Vital on a quiet cul-de-sac. This installation is estimated to generate approximately 60% of the annual energy needs for this 2 storey house.
System size DC: 8.25kW
System Size AC: kW
Panels: 30 x 275W PolyCrystaline
Type of racking: Fastrack flushmount
Inverters: 1 x 7.6kW Solar Edge + 30 Solar Edge Optimizers
Distance: Roof Mount
Upgrades: None Required
Manitoba Hydro informed us that this was the first installation in Winnipeg under the Solar rebate program. Since this installation was in the City of Winnipeg, the city inspectors were also heavily involved. Courtney and his wife also decided to use the Manitoba Hydro Solar Loan program to finance their installation through their monthly hydro bills.

“I can’t recommend Solar Manitoba strongly enough. If they can handle my installation with quality and success, the first installation completed under the new solar power incentive program, then they can certainly handle anyone else’s with ease!”
