Schneider helps Team North create award-winning solar home

Schneider Electric recently donated Xantrex inverters, Square D Powerlogic Energy Management system, Veris current transformers, QO circuit breakers, a QO loadcentre and safety switches to Team North’s solar-powered home—North House.
North House, which produces more energy than it consumes, is a recipient of the 2010 Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) Design Excellence Award. The annual awards offer Ontario architects, students and interns an opportunity to showcase their best work and increase public appreciation of the services provided by the architectural profession.
”The products we received from Schneider Electric were critical for both our energy production and energy monitoring systems,” said Lauren Barhydt, Team North’s project manager (a graduate student at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture). “We were grateful for the products, but also for the kind and thoughtful advice from Schneider Electric’s engineers—especially in the crunch-time of our deadline!”
