I took my solar PV course here. I was kinda nervous and wasn't sure if I would be able to finish it, but Randall was the most helpful instructor who was able to keep my attention the entire time and answered every question I had thoroughly without me feeling silly for asking. Wouldn't change a single thing about the company. Gridworks is a blue print of what a company should be! 100% recommend for anything you need! Extremely helpful

I went to a training from Gridworks this past week. Randall and his team were extremely professional and I felt safe during the entire time. Randall’s years of experience in the PV Array industry is unmatched anywhere in the province. I highly suggest utilizing them for PV installation or going through a training to learn more about the industry.

Solar and EV Installation

Gridworks did our garage-rooftop solar and EV install in 2017. They did a great job and the system has worked seamlessly over the last five years. We wanted more panels on our home rooftop so we went with them again and they did a great job again. Corey was an excellent project manager and he was always quick to respond when I had questions. They were also great at helping facilitate the application for the municipal and federal rebates. The new system is up and running now and I am really pleased with the outcome.

Common questions on solar for businesses

By installing an electric meter you can monitor how much solar energy each tenant is using and bill them accordingly.

The addition of a solar system will undoubtedly increase the value of a commercial property. Not only that, investing in renewable energy gives the image of a green-friendly business and updates the physical appearance.

In Canada, depending on the time of year means you’re building may not use all the solar energy generated on a daily basis. In this case, you’re able to sell the energy back to the grid, increasing the profitability of your commercial solar system setup.

Even if you don’t consume all the energy solar generates, none of it is wasted. The excess energy generated will be sold to your electrical retailer and that energy will be dispersed to your neighbors for consumption.

The more direct and intense the UV rays from the sun, the higher the production of energy produced by solar panels will be. 

There will always be electricity generated as long as there is visible light, though it will be less. 

The amount of energy solar panels will produce depends on several factors, including the weather and general climate of the area your panels are installed.

Depending on the style of building, there are different variations in technology that can be used to improve the effectiveness of solar panels. Contact us to find out the best individual solution for your situation.

No, it is very uncommon that you will notice any interruption when implementing solar panels for your business. The solar power systems we install are grid-connected and do not require batteries.

Depending on the size of the system you can create credits equal to your electricity consumption costs over the year by switching to solar. Keep in mind that most solar setups usually aren’t meant to completely remove your need for the regular electricity grid, but to reduce your reliance on it.

Depending on the size of the system and the amount of energy that it creates in comparison to your consumption, payoff period as well as rebates in place at the time of construction payoff for a residential system is between 7 – 15 years. Commercial systems are between 10 – 15 years. Joining the Solar Club at 25.8 cents/kwh will further reduce your ROI time by a couple of years.

As solar is a long-term investment in your property, any building with a rooftop in good condition has the potential of being a great candidate for our installations.
