SOLAR POWER

Proven. Reliable. No Fluff.

A solar power system can help you decrease your electricity costs by helping you reduce reliance on BC Hydro or Generators. By owning your own system you lock in your energy costs long term.

There is really no downside to owning your own solar power system and the upsides are significant. With a decrease in energy costs, guaranteed long-term investment, a reduction in carbon footprint,  the comfort that you are not reliant on utilities, and the lowest historical install costs are just some of the great reasons to make the jump. 

Planning and Installing Your System

Renewable energy equipment requires specific location placement and design for optimum efficiency. These businesses, homes or cabin systems necessitate proper installation procedures and most require scheduled maintenance for ongoing energy savings. Larger commercial grade installations have even more factors to incorporate.

 

Our renowned and detailed estimating process will not only get you the best value but also outline the actual return on your investment using our historical data and forecasted hydro costs (no fluff we promise). For off-grid installs, we have seen the pitfalls of many "Canadian Tire" systems. If you are looking for a professional worry free backup power system we are here to help.

 

When you're provided with the correct information making an informed decision is easy.
