Solar Market Outlook in Canada
The forecast is bright for the future of the solar energy sector in Canada. In particular, the year 2020 was a promising one for the Canadian solar energy market and it has built a solid foundation for more solar growth in 2021.
The Canadian Renewable Energy Association released a statement citing that the renewable energy market in Canada – not just solar – saw significant expansion in 2020 and it is looking to build on that momentum for 2021 moving forward. This was impressive considering the challenges that faced them in 2020 given the pandemic. For 2020, the total solar capacity reached 2,000 MW, giving Canada sufficient energy storage.
The consistent growth in the solar market is fueled by the increased corporate demand and the policies put in place by the government. Even with the disruptions of 2020, Canada was able to generate 70 MW of solar PV capacity. The three levels of government in Canada will work together to reduce carbon emissions and to facilitate growth in solar PV capacity.
Wind and solar combine to form the largest share in Canada’s renewable energy sector in terms of power generation.

How to Install Solar Panels on your RV?
Since an RV roof doesn’t have a huge space to install a solar panel like your house roof, you have to get a smaller-sized solar panel system to maximize the space. Also, you have to consider few things when installing solar panels on your RV. First, the mounting hardware you will need to use for installing solar panels on your RV depends on the solar panel types, (is it tempered glass or flexible?). Second, the type of roof that your RV has also matter, (is it a rubber/TPO roof or fiberglass). Lastly, do you want to tilt your solar panels or not?
For a rubber RV roof, the best way to mount your solar panels is to screw them in with lag bolts. While the simplest mounting hardware that you can use for this RV roof is the Z-bracket. It is the most common mounting bracket that comes in RV solar kits. But, remember not to use VHB tape when mounting solar panels to a rubber roof RV.
If your RV roof is made of fiberglass, you no longer have to drill holes into your roof when mounting your solar panels. You only have to Simply apply VHB tape. Just make sure you applied it properly so it won’t be removed.
But if you really love to spend a lot of your time traveling in different parts of the world or you simply love camping in areas far from the civilized city, you can still enjoy your life without limiting yourself to use those gadgets and machinery. As long as you always have your recreational vehicle and you installed a solar panels system to your RV roof you then you can still access those things.
