Stoney Lake Boathouse

Our client owns property on the shores of beautiful Stoney Lake and wanted to embrace renewable energy to produce his own energy at the family cottage. The solution was a net metered array atop the boathouse with the eventual goal of becoming net zero.

The challenges in this project arose from limited roof space, a waterfront site, and maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the boathouse. To address the first issue, high efficiency modules were used to squeeze a 19 kW PV array onto the relatively small boathouse roof. Given the limited roof access of a structure surrounded by water on three sides, a single access point off the gable was used to ferry men and materials to the rooftop. All black modules were used to give the appearance of a simple black roof; a modern design twist on an iconic Stoney Lake boathouse. This system is also noteworthy as it was designed from the beginning to incorporate future Tesla Powerwalls for backup power.
