The team dug right in, came up with a brilliant solution, got the job done on time, and took care of absolutely everything (including all of the paperwork.)

Both Federal and Provincial governments occasionally provide incentives for commercial enterprises to invest in solar power from time to time. The Federal government currently offers a tax incentive for businesses, allowing them to depreciate 100% of the system cost in the first year against taxable income which reduces the cost of commercial solar panels by getting money back in your pocket faster.
From there, each Province administers its own incentives for businesses. In Alberta, there is the Micro-Generation Regulation that allows for the annual net-metering of systems up to 5 MW. In British Columbia, it also has annual net-metering for commercial establishments, as long as customers have a renewable electricity generator connected to the BC Hydro distribution system. The Province also offers a provincial sales tax exemption for solar panel equipment. As for Saskatchewan, SaskPower has unveiled its new net-metering program while Manitoba offers net billing. EVOLVsolar can help you navigate these programs to develop the right system for your needs.
Whether it is for financial or for environmental reasons, solar power can provide your business with practical benefits that will aid your operations, funding, reputation and the environment. Taking advantage of available programs will help your company in the future.

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.
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.
