Are you tired of skyrocketing electricity bills and the uncertainty of relying solely on the grid? It’s time to take control of your energy future by harnessing the abundant power of the sun with solar panels. Here’s why you should consider installing solar today:
1. Save Money from Day One: Ontario is blessed with abundant sunlight, and by installing solar panels, you can generate your own clean and renewable energy. Say goodbye to escalating energy costs and take advantage of the Ontario government’s Net Metering program. With net metering, any excess energy you produce can be sent back to the grid, earning you credits that offset your electricity bill. Imagine the savings you’ll enjoy year after year!
2. Protect Against Rising Energy Costs: Traditional electricity prices are known to fluctuate, causing financial stress for homeowners and businesses. By investing in solar, you can lock in your energy costs and reduce your reliance on the grid. With solar, you have a long-term solution that shields you from future electricity price hikes, providing stability and financial peace of mind.
3. Environmental Stewardship: As the global call for sustainability grows louder, there has never been a better time to contribute to a greener future. By going solar, you reduce your carbon footprint, decrease dependence on fossil fuels, and promote cleaner air for your community. Join the renewable energy revolution and be a proud advocate for a sustainable planet.
4. Government Incentives: The Ontario government offers attractive incentives to encourage the adoption of solar energy. Through programs like the GreenON Solar Rebates and the federal government’s Renewable Energy Deployment Initiative, you can benefit from significant financial support, making your solar investment even more affordable. Seize this opportunity to maximize your return on investment!
5. Increased Property Value: Installing solar panels is an investment that pays off in more ways than one. Studies have shown that homes and businesses equipped with solar systems enjoy increased property values. Potential buyers and clients are drawn to environmentally conscious properties with reduced energy costs, making your property more attractive in the real estate market.
6. Energy Independence and Reliability: With solar, you gain energy independence. No longer will you be at the mercy of grid outages or energy disruptions. Even during power outages, your solar system, when coupled with energy storage solutions, can keep your essential appliances and devices running. Embrace the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have a reliable and uninterrupted power source.
Don’t wait any longer to embrace the benefits of solar energy! Our team of experienced professionals will guide you through the entire process, from initial assessment to seamless installation, ensuring a hassle-free transition to clean, renewable power. Take the first step towards energy independence, substantial savings, and a greener future.

What is the net metering program ?
In Ontario, net metering is a program that allows homeowners and businesses with solar systems to offset their electricity bills and even earn credits for the excess energy they generate. Here’s how solar net metering works in Ontario:
1. Installation of Solar Panels: Homeowners or businesses install solar panels on their property to generate electricity from the sun. These solar panels consist of photovoltaic (PV) cells that convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity.
2. Connection to the Grid: The solar system is connected to the local electricity grid, allowing for two-way energy flow. When your solar panels produce more electricity than you consume, the excess energy is sent back to the grid.
3. Bi-Directional Metering: A bi-directional meter is installed to measure the flow of electricity. This special meter records both the energy consumed from the grid and the excess energy exported to the grid. It keeps track of the net energy flow, hence the term “net metering.”
4. Offset and Credits: The excess electricity you produce is credited to your account. These credits are applied to offset the electricity you consume from the grid when your solar panels are not generating enough power (e.g., during the night or on cloudy days). Essentially, you use your excess energy credits to pay for the electricity you need from the grid, effectively reducing your electricity bill.
5. Billing and Settlement: Typically, net metering operates on a monthly billing cycle. At the end of each billing period, the utility company calculates your net energy consumption by subtracting the energy you exported to the grid from the energy you imported. If you generate more energy than you consume in a given month, the surplus is carried forward as credits to the next billing period.
