Gridworks Solar Installations in Alberta

Our PV installers and designers are also skilled electricians. With this range of knowledge and training, we are ready to complete a detailed site assessment of your company’s properties to determine the solar resources available. Using this information, a design will be built and tailored to exceed your company’s environmental standards and fall within your budgets.
As a certified electrical contractor we can also help you find efficiencies in other areas of your business including facility maintenance, LED lighting upgrades, rooftop unit maintenance, and equipment disconnections or relocations.

Installations times can vary from one project to another. For a typical residential installation, once you decide to move forward with Gridworks Energy as your solar energy provider, it takes about week or so to get all the applications and permitting in place. Once complete, we schedule your installation. We require between 3-5 days for a typical residential project. After the installation is complete, it takes a couple more weeks to wrap up the rebates, inspections, and interconnection agreements. All in, a residential installation can be completed inside of a month with the right conditions.
Module warranties vary across manufacturers, but the most common is a 10 year workmanship warranty combined with a 25 year production warranty.
Maintenance is extremely limited. The inverters should be kept clear of dust build up and the modules can be cleaned with a detergent adapter on a hose and a mild detergent once every year or two. Module soiling and snow cover is built into the system design and accounted for early in the planning stages, so no maintenance is required to receive the expected amount of production.
Solar modules have a 25 year warranty, but they are designed to last much longer.
