Rough Estimate

Please click here to securely access your BC Hydro consumption information. Then provide us with how many “Kilowatt hours” you used last year and your address.

Site Evaluation & Quote

If the rough estimate sounds reasonable, we will book an appointment with you to do a site assessment with the aim to answer all your questions and to generate a firm quote for your solar project.

Deposit & Contract

Once you are ready to go we will ask for a deposit and for a signed contract. At that point, we can set the date of your install and begin your BC Hydro paperwork.


Once we receive the approval from BC Hydro (usually 2 to 3 weeks), we complete your installation. Most installations usually take between 1 and 3 days.

Net Metering

Net metering in BC is the agreement that the utility will credit you for electricity fed back to the grid through your smart meter. Your smart meter can meter both ways so on your bill you will see both energy purchased and energy credited. Credits are applied to your bill each billing period, offsetting your electricity purchases. Excess energy credits are carried over to your account to the next billing period.

Normal Operation

During normal operation, the Solar system generates electricity when there is enough light out. The electricity feeds back to the house electrical panel and is used by any loads that are running. If you are using more than you produce, your utility makes up the difference. If the production from solar is greater than your use, the excess goes back to the utility through your smart meter and you build up a credit.

Power Outage

With a Solar Grid-tie system, when the grid power goes out your Solar System will shut off. This is to prevent electricity from the solar array feeding back to the grid and hurting someone while the power is down. You can still run a generator for your essential loads if you have that setup. If you would like your solar to work when the grid is unavailable, you will require a battery backup system.

EV Solar Charging

We can provide you with an inverter that accepts a Level 2 charging station that utilizes Solar and Grid Energy simultaneously.  So now you can power up your home and your car from the same solar array. Very cool technology!
