This is one of the most common questions our customers ask when thinking about transitioning to solar power. With the cost of solar coming down over 70% in the last decade and temporary subsidies being announced by the Alberta government that will cover up to 30% of the installed cost, we truly believe that there’s no time like the present.
For the majority of clients, going solar yields significant savings over the life of the system. The sooner you install, the sooner you can take advantage of those savings.
If I go solar now, will I still be able to take advantage of the government and tax credits?
The Alberta Government recently announced a solar subsidy program which caps out at $36m in grants, which means it will be first-come first-serve for homeowners. Given the typical sales cycle takes 6-8 weeks to go through the paperwork, financing, and final design it makes sense to start soon so that you can have your system in place to take advantage of the brightest months of the year. And keep in mind, the initial assessment is free!
At EVOLVsolar, our professional sales team will guide you through the application process to ensure you get the maximum subsidy for your home.
