“I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”

Thomas Edison (to Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone), 1931

Southern Alberta has great potential

Worried about snow?

Northern Alberta Institute of Technology published a report on a one-year observation on the effects of snow covered solar modules.  Their goals were to provide solar energy system educators, installers, and adopters with real world regional performance data.

NAIT set up a two 6-module systems, angled from 14° (3-12 pitch) to 90° (wall mount). They kept one side completely clear of snow for six months during the winter, and the results were far from what most would expect.

Snow covered modules produced only 0.53% to 16.78% less the snow cleared panels from October 01 to March 21!

It is safe to say you do not need to worry about your solar module performance due to snow coverage.

Worried about hail?

Our Solar modules are made with tempered glass and under standard test conditions they will withstand hail up to the one inch in diameter traveling at 50 miles per  hour.  We have never seen a panel damaged by hail.  Just watch the video!

INFORMATION

No batteries are required when you install solar panels that are “grid-tied”. You consume “free power” that you generate from your panels when the sun is shining. Any excess power flows back onto the grid. “Net Zero” is when you produce the same amount of electricity as you consume. Since your solar system produces electricity only when the sun is shining you need to produce sufficient excess electricity back to the grid to offset what you consume when the sun isn’t shining.

Batteries are only required if you are “off-grid”.

The number of modules you can start with is 4, and you can go up from there.  When we provide you with a Solar Assessment, we will be able to tell how many solar modules we can install on your roof or property.

Throughout the world, solar power systems that were installed in the late 80’s are still working today! Our solar modules have a 25-year performance warranty.  We expect the systems to last  30 – 50 years with minimal maintenance.
