Why Solar? Why Now?

Solar prices have dropped dramatically
Save Money

You can start saving thousands of dollars with a customized solar energy solution. Recent reductions in the cost of solar panels and the Greener Home Grant have made solar an obvious choice for saving money while choosing power from the sun. Whether it is your home or a commercial property, just imagine the certainty and added value of free electricity. Ask us how?

The cost of solar and value of free electricity is being reflected in home sale prices. Financing can be made available with payments as low as $71.00 per month*, details here

Shorter payback periods

Typical payback periods for On-Grid systems are now as low as 6 years with the $5,000 Greener Home Grant. Off-Grid systems are even lower because of the high cost of alternative fuels. Choose the payback period that works for you. BC Hydro rate increases have averaged 6% and 8% per year for Step 1 and Step 2 respectively over the past 10 years. Take charge of your costs by choosing solar.
