* These types of power systems are generally connected to the main power grid, however, they can also be installed as a "Stand Alone" system. In this instance a generator is required as a back-up energy source in times of poor weather conditions. Batteries are also needed to store any excess energy for use when weather conditions are not conducive to energy production.

** Refer to our Schedule of Fees & Charges and Transaction Account Rebates for more information on Transaction Account Rebates and a list of eligible Transaction Accounts.
