The Lowen family’s Coldstream Corner Farms net-zero project
APsystems microinverters power Canada’s first all-solar organic farm in British Columbia’s beautiful Okanagan valley. The 3.7-acre Lowen family farm produces a staggering array of vegetables, fruits and herbs for market. The farm produces all its own power, thanks to a 93-module, 29kW rooftop array using APsystems YC500 microinverters. Local installer Got Solar? helped owners Helmi and Kornelius Lowen achieve energy self-sufficiency, selecting APsystems microinverters for their power output, flexibility in system design and “future proof” warranty.
