Generate your own electric power from the sun to reduce your energy bills and protect yourself from future electricity cost increases while contributing to a clean and sustainable energy future.
There are some restrictions and it doesn’t work for every property but most Ontario home-owners can generate some or all of their electricity from their own rooftops using modern solar technology. The Ontario net-metering program makes this possible.
Our team at SolarDirectCanada has been helping homeowners generate their own power for years. We have been in business since 1990 and you can count on us to be there when you need us in the future.
We can provide a free assessment of your home and give you a detailed report on your rooftop’s potential. Contact us today and we can answer any questions you have.
Net metering systems allow you to generate some or all of the electricity you use on an annual basis. When your system produces more energy than you are using, the excess power goes to the grid. Your hydro company credits you for this supply and offsets future consumption when you are using more power than your system is generating. This can bring your annual electricity cost down to near $0.
Roof Mounted Systems
Roof mounted systems are generally the most cost-effective and make good use of space you are otherwise not using. They can have the added benefit of lowering attic temperatures potentially extending shingle life and reducing air-conditioning costs.
Ground Mount Systems
Ground mount systems are appropriate where shading or other limitations make roof mount impractical. They have advantages such as optimizing panel orientation and allow clearing snow off the panels without ladders and/or roof rakes.
For solar installations there is a $5,000 rebate and a 10 year interest free loan on the project balance. The first step is a pre-audit by an approved energy auditor. Solar Direct Canada recommends Energuy.com who will provide details on current program availability.
Hybrid solar energy systems incorporate battery backup into your solar installation. It helps you conserve energy, reduce your carbon footprint, and provide backup power in an outage or emergency, giving you peace of mind. It also allows you to load shift to take advantage of time-of-use energy rates.
