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?
As Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Manitoba have some of the best solar potentials in Canada, solar energy just makes good financial sense for homeowners. You are guaranteed a consistent source of sunshine throughout the year, which will power your home, offset your electricity use and create excess energy to sell for credits. It is a sure-fire way to save on your energy bills, lock-in low energy prices for up to 30 years, and generate a strong return on investment - both in solar power energy and the value of your home.
Moreover, you will reduce your carbon footprint, making a positive impact on the environment and showing leadership in your community. You'll enjoy energy independence as you'll produce your own clean, green energy for your home, protecting you from power outages and energy systems.
As one of the top residential solar companies in Western Canada, we will develop your solar panel system and secure your property for the future.
Our experienced team of engineers and installation experts can install solar on just about any type of roofing – asphalt shingles, cedar shakes, metal roofing and more. See for yourself by viewing our portfolio of home solar projects in Western Canada.
I went through Evolv Solar to get solar panels on my house. At first I was a little unsure of how exactly everything worked, but they walked me through it and helped me fill out and file documents. When they installed the panels they were quick, efficient and friendly. Altogether Evolv Solar made the whole process painless and easy, and I’m loving my solar panels!! Definitely recommend!
As the push for solar energy gathers pace, Federal and Provincial governments are offering incentives and rebates for residents throughout Canada to continue this growth.
Residents that are plugged into the utility grid can send excess energy back to their providers. You'll receive credits for any power you generate from your own system and send to the grid, decreasing your electricity bill throughout the year. There can also be the opportunity to take advantage of Government incentives for installing solar panels in your province, and EVOLVsolar will guide you through this process every step of the way.
As each province runs its own energy market, and the Federal government has its own policy, the opportunities can be overwhelming. As leaders in solar energy for residents, we stay on top of all the latest Provincial and Federal government updates on solar energy. We're knowledgeable and informative, walking you through each quote, so you know everything before you sign up with us.
With no moving parts and high-quality manufacturing standards, solar photovoltaic systems are in a class of their own when it comes to durability. Solar modules sold by us come with a 25-year performance warranty, and generally last much longer than that. The inverters, which convert energy from direct current produced by the modules to alternating current used on your 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.
