Solar houses



Énergéco now works in partnership with Volts Energies, to provide its eco-energy autonomous homes with an innovative and environmentally friendly solar electrification solution.

A solar hybrid solar energy system consists mainly of:

  • Solar panels
  • Batteries to store energy
  • A complementary energy source :
    • A generator if the site is off-grid
    • Hydro-Québec if the site is on-grid

Contributions of a hybrid solar energy solution:

  • Autonomy and security of electricity supply
  • Significant savings in fuel cost and maintenance*
  • Additional value of real estate
  • Low greenhouse gas emissions*

*Versus a single generator, in off-grid conditions
