Any excess electricity generated by the roof panel will be sold to the main grid to further reduce the cost of electricity in the town.

Dunphy said that the $5 m federal funds for the summer solar project will pay about half of the $200,000 cost of the project through the federal gas tax refund.
The mayor said solar panels could also help offset any carbon tax the federal government may impose in the coming years.
The target solar panel to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is the first step in the town\'s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2015 from the level of 20 percent.
\"What\'s more important is to save greenhouse gases and provide leadership for the town to make solar technology work, save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions,\" said Dunphy . \".
Bids for engineering and design work contracts are due on August. 9.
According to the mayor, the town wants solar panels to start and run by the end of the year. MORE P. E. I.
