Millions of Canadians are deciding to power their homes with solar energy—especially as costs have decreased—but an investment in solar generates more than just clean energy. It can support household savings, energy independence, economic opportunities, grid resilience and security, and a safer planet.
What is Solar?
PV modules and arrays are just one part of a PV System. Systems also include mounting structures that point panels toward the sun, along with the components that take the direct-current (DC) electricity produced by modules and convert it to the alternating-current (AC) electricity used to power all of the appliances in your home.
Solar panels are built to work in all climates, but in some cases, rooftops may not be suitable for solar systems due to age or tree cover. If there are trees near your home that create excessive shade on your roof, rooftop panels may not be the most ideal option. The size, shape, and slope of your roof are also important factors to consider. Typically, solar panels perform best on south-facing roofs with a slope between 15 and 40 degrees, though other roofs may be suitable too. You should also consider the age of your roof and how long until it will need a replacement.
Can I get Financing for Solar?
Yes, the Canadian Government has issued a Greener Homes Interest Free Loan for up to $40,000.00 and a $5,000.00 tax free grant for Green Home improvements. We can help guide you through the process and work with you to expedite the change to cleaner energy
