Frequently Asked Questions About Going Solar

Is switching to Solar a long process? What do I have to do?

Switching to solar is very easy, however, how long it takes depends on several factors such as what province, municipality, city, or town you live in and who your current utility provider is. SolarCorp works with the local government and your utility provider to help you secure the permits required, however, this process can take some time. In addition to secure the appropriate permits a bank also needs to be involved in order to help secure financing for your project. SolarCorp has partnered with several banks, both on a national and regional level to ensure our customers are offered seamless financing options that fit their lifestyle, budget, and requirements.

Because we are a full-service solar provider we have already done much of the groundwork required in areas that we operate to ensure a quick, easy, and seamless experience for our customers.

A realistic number we like to give our customers is approximately one week for a quote and system design to be put together and, if approved, about 30-90 days to secure the permits and complete all of the paper work involved. After that the actual installation of your system should take no longer than 1 full business day.

Are solar panels attractive? Will they impact the sale of my home?

All panels sold and installed by SolarCorp meet our high standards of aesthetic appeal (without sacrificing any performance!). Modules are available either in the standard blue colour or in a sleek and modern black finish. Additionally, today, many home buyers see green energy and high-efficiency as a plus when looking for a home. Overall, your solar system will look great and actually should increase the value of your home, especially if you purchase them outright.

You will save money on your electricity now, and your home will be appraised at a higher value in the future!

Home much does a solar system cost?

The price of each solar system is unique as the size and configuration depend largely on the home, what type of system (rooftop or ground-mount), as well as energy efficiency and consumption of the home.

Generally, home solar systems run between $15-25,000 without any government rebates or incentives, which can cover up to 30% of the total cost! Solar is much easier and more affordable than many people think, and it’s a great way to save money and reduce your carbon footprint.
