Installing photovoltaic solar panels can generate electricity for use in the home or building.

They can even contribute excess power to the electric grid, reducing energy bills and contributing to clean energy generation.

Due to the visual impact on the exterior of the building and streetscape, consideration should be given to the type, location and layout of the installation. Homes in the Queen’s Park Heritage Conservation Area, and protected heritage properties such as those with a Heritage Designation bylaw may need to meet specific design guidelines.
