Generating Green Energy
According to Government sources and documents, 'Green Energy" is defined as follows :
"Renewable energy sources are those that produce electricity or thermal energy without depleting resources. Renewable energy includes solar, wind, water, earth and biomass power, and energy from waste. "
"Alternative or renewable source of energy means a source of energy that produces electricity from wind, water, a biomass resource, Hydrogen, biogas, biofuel, landfill gas, an eligible fossil fuel, uranium, solar energy, geothermal energy, tidal forces or thermal waste/ "
What Green Energy means to your bottom line
If, in addition to 'peak shaving' or 'arbitrage' to use electricity at a less expensive rate, you also generate your own 'green energy', two things happen :
1 - the electricity you generate replaces energy from the 'grid' - you no longer have to purchase it
|2 - the cost of the equipment which enables your peak shaving and green energy generation is eligible for Federal and Provincial programs which will pay for much of your investment.|
