Sunny Osoyoos

In the Okanagan, our weather tends to come from the Pacific coast, carrying rain, but in Osoyoos we are fortunate to have the Cascade mountains to our west, which ‘split’ the clouds which go north and south of us. Often we are sitting in full sun while we see rain in Oliver to our north, and rain over Oroville to the south. This means we get tons of sun, so much sun in fact that Osoyoos is technically in a desert!

The solar energy hitting our roofs can be converted to electricity by means of solar panels, and we can use that in our homes, or using the ‘Net Metering’ scheme sell it back to FortisBC™ if we are generating more than we are using at that point in time.
