Jennifer is thinking about purchasing an electric vehicle this summer. She is worried about the costs of charging this vehicle and is concerned about having to use non-renewable energy sources to power her vehicle...
While walking home she begins to think about how her next door neighbour has solar panels on his roof! Jennifer wonders if she could use energy from solar panels to power her daily needs and hydro power to power her nightly charging.
All of a sudden Jennifer remembers something she saw in the news! She saw an ad for a rental solar panel program! What if she could utilize that very program to achieve her power needs? It would save her a lot of money, and she wouldn't have to deal with the hassle and maintenance of buying her own solar panels (not to mention the high costs)!
Before she loses her determination, Jennifer jumps into her car and heads to the Hydro Ottawa headquarters nearby. She makes a mental note to request for installation and maintenance to be provided by Hydro Ottawa.
Jennifer signs a contract for solar panels to be installed on her roof, and in return, she will receive a credit on her electricity bill every month from power generated using the solar panel! She also learns she can feed remaining unused power back into the grid for more credits!
Jennifer dreams about her new electrical vehicle...perhaps a Tesla? The savings from the solar panel are vast....although maybe not that vast.....
