I’m interested in purchasing:
Complete solar energy system
A turnkey solar energy or energy storage system begins with a property and energy usage assessment. Next comes design, permits, installation, passing inspection and finally, energizing the system. Track your system’s performance with an energy production and consumption monitoring app to show friends proof that your location is net zero in real time.
Complete energy storage system
Solar’s potential is truly unleashed when a solar energy system is paired with a battery, to create an Energy Storage System (ESS). Go completely off-grid or use it for backup power in the event of a power outage.
While DIYing your solar energy system is generally reserved for the veteran builder, there’s no reason you can’t save up to 10% purchasing equipment wholesale for your chosen local installer. Send me your price quote or electrical drawings, and I’ll source the required components.
Why should I put solar panels on my:
With current trends, residential energy use is increasing
Reduce your carbon and ecological footprint
For every kilowatt-hour of solar energy you produce, you save 40 g CO2.
Get piece of mind
Ontario experiences 9x more power outages than any other province or territory, and total instances have been increasing every year from 2012 onward. By adding a battery to your solar energy system, you’ll never be eating a cold dinner in the dark.
Lower your electricity bill to nearly zero with a net-metered system
Cottage or cabin?
Offset expensive future hydro bill increases
Nearly 74,000 Ontario cottagers fall under Hydro One’s seasonal rate class, which will soon be abolished. The OEB expects half of these customers will see average monthly bill increases of $5 to $79 after they have been reclassified. Instead, why not put that money towards a low-interest monthly loan and build up equity in your vacation property?
A battery can add several days of autonomy should there be a power outage or poor weather conditions.
Or be completely self-sufficient
Ideal for cottages or cabins in remote areas, a battery turns a solar energy system into an off-grid system – meaning you have no utility bills and access to more reliable power, with no dependence on the grid. Historically, rural Ontarians reported experiencing more and significantly longer power interruptions than urbanites. Modern lithium ion batteries are low maintenance and automatically balance your supply and demand 24/7. An off-grid energy storage system gives your vacation property all the features of home.
Solar energy technology is constantly improving
Tiny houses consume only a fraction of the electricity that a conventional house uses. With energy output per solar panel increasing from 220 kW a few years ago, up to to 350 or even 440 kW today, a small solar energy system can still supply a large portion of your energy needs from springtime through to the fall. And you don’t need that much space to install it.
Flexible design options
Tiny houses can be built almost anywhere. That’s their superpower. So can your solar system. It’s designed to meet your site’s specifications; grid-tied or off-grid, with mounting options varying from rooftop, to facade or ground mount.
Perfect match for a sustainable lifestyle
Solar energy produces zero carbon emissions when generating energy, and lasts for 25 years. Efforts are underway to mass recycle end-of-life modules.
