HARNESS THE POWER OF

SOLAR TO SAVE MONEY AT HOME Rising energy bills and an increased focus on the environment have led many homeowners to consider solar power. But harnessing the power of the sun requires some planning and professional help.

Let’s begin… JoAnneGludish.com joanne@joannegludish.com c: 416.817.3747 o: 416.231.3000

G IN N M O CO SO

Solar energy and energy storage systems (ESS) come with some daunting considerations, including overcurrent protection, disconnecting means, wiring methods, grounding, etc. These are all better left for the professionals to manage. HOME-BUILDING EXPERT MICHAEL HOLMES JR. AND THE ELECTRICAL SAFETY AUTHORITY SHARE A FEW TIPS ON HOW TO LEVERAGE SOLAR ENERGY AND ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS.

INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE Knowing where to place your solar panels, correctly wiring them both inside and outside the home and ensuring you are receiving the correct amount of energy can be complicated. Hiring a Licensed Electrical Contractor (LEC) can guarantee you are getting the most out of your systems. Beware of advertisements for installations of solar panels from unlicensed contractors, which are often accompanied by the promise of cheaper or low-cost work.

BENEFITS OF ESS & SOLAR POWER Solar and ESS systems can have a major impact on electricity bills by storing low-cost energy to use during peak hours. Both systems can provide peace of mind, as they can provide power during times of disruption, such as blackouts or other power failures. While both systems can increase reliability and offset costs, they can also work to reduce environmental impact. By lessening dependence on traditional power, greenhouse gas emissions can be decreased.

CONNECTING TO THE GRID Typically, ESS and solar power systems do not operate as stand-alone power sources. They often work in parallel with utility supplies, which in turn have many safety implications. When switching to solar energy, be sure to hire an LEC who can help you navigate these nuances, take out the proper notifications, ensure a safe and diligent installation and provide you with an ESA certificate. Switching to solar energy is not the right time for a DIY project, always do your research and consult with professionals. Learn more at esasafe.com. ◆

AR”, said Jennifer Richey, CSO, Gravity Jack. “To be able to see the product scaled to size in your space without tape measures or cardboard cutouts to see if it fits is AR at its finest.” With its customers in mind, Samsung enlisted augmented reality pioneers, Gravity Jack, to help create an application combining futuristic technology with the future of retail shopping and virtual product display. Samsung wanted to provide consumers an opportunity to pick the right TV, at the right size, while also making the shopping experience fun, stress-free and easy.

“WITH NEW ADVANCES IN PICTURE QUALITY, WE’RE INVITING CANADIANS TO RETHINK WHAT FITS WHEN IT COMES TO SELECTING TVS FOR THEIR HOME, EVEN IN SMALL SPACES,” said Pat Bugos, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Home Entertainment, Samsung Canada.

“THOUGH THE APP, CONSUMERS WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO TRULY DISCOVER OUR LINEUP OF BIG SCREEN TVS AND EXPAND THEIR VIEWING EXPERIENCE.”

To use the app, users can simply download the application onto their Android or iOS device, select their desired model and size, point their phone camera at the wall or TV stand, and viola! The application will scan the wall or TV stand automatically and place it in the user’s desired space.

SAMSUNG IS UPPING THE INTERIOR DESIGN GAME WITH THE USE OF AUGMENTED REALITY Samsung Electronics Canada recently released a new augmented reality mobile application revolutionizing the way consumers find their next TV. Through the use of your smartphone, you can see exactly what a big screen TV from Samsung will look like on your wall or entertainment centre before purchasing. Will a 98” TV fit on your wall? Or are you better off with a smaller, but still impressive, 75”? No need to break out your measuring tape, Samsung has got you covered with its “Samsung TV True Fit” app for Android and iOS devices.

Samsung continues to deliver premium innovation in home entertainment with its lineup of QLED 8K TVs. The best part? They come in 75” to 98” screen sizes, perfect for any die-hard TV aficionado. The unique augmented reality app allows you to see what a TV will look like in your home, before you even buy it – giving new meaning to the phrase, “try before you buy.” “Augmented reality is starting to become a part of our daily lives, and this Samsung app is a beautiful functional use case of

The app also boasts a feature allowing users to place their TV manually if they would like to move it. Once the TV is in place, users can move around the TV, get closer or further away, and view it from different angles. After a user has chosen the correct model and size for their home, they can then search for the nearest retailer in their area that sells Samsung TVs. Canadian consumers can start shopping for their dream TV today by downloading the “Samsung TV True Fit” app on the Google Play Store or the Apple Store. ◆

Cuban

CHICKEN STIR FRY WITH SNOW PEAS, SPINACH, BLACK BEANS AND RICE NOODLES

Stir fry recipes are perfect for a quick weeknight meal. This recipe may not seem like a quick cook, but once you have the seasoning made, the whole thing comes together really fast!

INGREDIENTS FOR THE MARINADE:

• 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs • 1 tbsp grapeseed oil, • Juice of 2 limes

DIRECTIONS STEP ONE: Slice the chicken on an angle into flat wide pieces. Place it in a bowl with the juice of 2 limes and 3 tbsp of Cuban Stirfry Seasoning, DELICIOUSDISH. Let it marinate while you get the rest of the recipe together. STEP T WO: In a large fry pan, I like cast iron, heat 2 tbsp of the oil over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and garlic, cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the snow peas, cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Remove this mixture to a serving dish. STEP THREE: Add the last bit of oil and the chicken and all its marinade into the pan and the 1 tbsp of Cuban Stirfry Seasoning,

• 3 tbsp Cuban Stirfry Seasoning, DELICIOUSDISH DELICIOUSDISH. Separate the chicken pieces and stir fry for about 4-5 minutes or until mostly cooked.

FOR THE STIR FRY:

STEP FOUR: Add the 3/4 cup water, turn the heat to high and let the water boil and thicken. It will take about 5 minutes. Add the veggies back to the pan, the spinach and the black beans. Let the spinach wilt while stirring.

• 1 cooking onion, sliced in half moons

STEP FIVE: Once the sauce has thickened, empty the pot on top of the rice noodles.

• 1 package of Rice Noodles, I like King Soba Brand, cooked

STEP SIX: Serve with any of the toppings tossed through! ◆

• 6 green onions, sliced in half moons

• 1 tbsp Cuban Stirfry Seasoning, DELICIOUSDISH • 3 tbsp grapeseed or avocado oil, divided • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped a little • 2 large handfuls of snow peas, trimmed • 3/4 cup water • 2-3 handfuls baby spinach • 1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed, optional

FOR THE TOPPING:

• 1 mango, peeled and diced • Handful of cilantro leaves, chopped • Juice of 1-2 limes

Serves 4.

• 1 long red chili pepper, minced
