Each design we create will help push farmers to more sustainable practices, securing their future and empowering their production. Each farm we empower is just another step in the right direction for a cleaner and better future. That's how we stand out from others.

Net metering means that during the day when you’re generating more power than you’re using, the utility company will buy it back from you.
Take control of your power bills by locking in the price for the next 30+ years with solar energy, effectively protecting you from rising power prices.
Shifting to solar increases the value of your agricultural operation – simply put, wouldn’t you pay more for a farm with no energy bill?
Western Canadian farmers have a tremendous opportunity to reduce their energy costs, capitalize on government rebates and incentives, and become a leader in sustainable energy. EVOLVsolar knows this better than anyone else - we've been helping farmers move to a more prosperous and viable long-term solution for years.
Our designs can be customized to work with your farming practices and systems. We can create a system that powers animal structures and electric fences, as well as your infrastructure's lighting, ventilation and cooling systems. It can also power your irrigation system and your equipment, so your production never slows down. It does not matter what you require from your solar power system; our team can construct it to your exact specifications.
Furthermore, as agriculture is a cornerstone of the Canadian economy, provincial and federal governments want to invest in this sector for long-term sustainable growth by offering financial incentives to install and maintain solar panel installations. Your farm can take advantage of this opportunity, offsetting the solar farm installation cost. Our team can help you navigate these sophisticated offerings in any Western province, thanks to our experience in the industry and commitment to knowledge.
Our main focus at EVOLVsolar has and continues to be supporting farms and agricultural operations lower their reliance on grid power – see for yourself by viewing select projects in Western Canada.

With no moving parts and high quality manufacturing standards, solar PV systems are in a class of their own when it comes to durability. Solar modules sold by EVOLVsolar come with a 25-year performance warranty, and generally last much longer than that. The inverters, which convert energy from the Direct Current (DC) produced by the modules to the Alternating Current used on you property, generally have to be replaced after 20 years.
The first step towards installing solar is doing some research and getting a custom quote that takes into account your actual property location and features. At EVOLVsolar, we typically need the following information:
1. Your annual usage in kWh or your monthly billing amount
2. The location that you’d like to install the solar PV array
3. If you’re interested in a roof mount, it also helps that we know the type of roofing (asphalt shingles, metal, etc), the year it was installed and the pitch (e.g. 4/12)
The more information we have, the more accurate our quote will be.
And most importantly, make sure to get solid answers on all your questions - solar PV is a long-term decision that will generally pay you back 3-4 times what you invested over a 25+ year period, but does require an up front investment. It’s important that you feel that you have been listened to and the company you work with will install a quality product designed to stand the test of time.

Trick question – there are no batteries for standard grid-tied solar PV installations. During the day, any excess electricity is sold back to the grid for credits. At night and in the winter months, you can use those credits to purchase electricity back from the grid. Batteries can of course be added to a system for those looking to have power backup in the case of emergencies.
There are actually 3 different warranties that provide reassurance you’ll be producing power for years to come:
1) Product Warranty - At EVOLVsolar, we only offer panels with a minimum 10-year Product Warranty on materials and workmanship.
2) Performance Warranty - We only choose solar panels that guarantee they’ll produce a minimum 90% of the rated power after 10 years and 82% after 25 years.
3) Service Warranty If there are any labor-related defects from the installation process, EVOLVsolar will repair them free of charge for 3 years after the date of installation.
Making an investment in solar is a personal decision, so only you can answer that. Some questions that you may want to ask yourself include:
If the answer to a few of those questions is yes, then solar might be right for you. Of course, we here at EVOLVsolar will work hard to get you all the information you need to make the right decision.
