We will design and engineer each system to meet your specific needs whatever they are.

switch to grid-connected photovoltaics and save money

Simply, our approach is to design and install to the highest standards, both in engineering and Canadian Electrical Code standards, while making the switch simple for our clients.

We want to make it simple for our clients to switch to grid-connected photovoltaics and to save money on their electricity bills. We take care of everything from the design, supply, the installation, permitting, commissioning and the grid-connection application. We will show you how much you will save per year on your electricity bill and how an investment in PV is sound both economically and environmentally.

Many of our clients are even in a credit with their electrical retailer! We will help you do the same.

YOU NEED SOME HELP. WE GOT YOU COVERED.

grid-connected solar photovoltaic system

A grid-connected PV system is simple in it’s design and in the way it works. It includes several components working together to convert the sun’s energy into electrical power that can be connected to a building’s standard electrical infrastructure and the utility grid.

automatic unattended solar energy system

There are no moving parts and no user intervention is required in the day-to-today operation of the system. It is designed for automatic, unattended operation.

generate electricity for yourself and the grid

When there is sufficient light, either direct or indirect, your PV system generates electricity for use in you home's electrical energy consumption needs. Any excess electrical energy generated by your PV system will be exported to your local electrical transmission grid. Your local Wires Service Provider (WSP) and electrical retailer will work in conjunction to record (via a bidirectional meter installed for free by your WSP) all exported electrical energy in kWh's where you will be compensated for all net-electrical energy exported.
