Whether you’re planning on retiring soon and want fixed monthly costs, or you’re renovating and want an upgrade that pays you back, installing solar panels can help you achieve those goals. We offer consultations to determine your needs and then provide custom proposals so you can see how solar would benefit you.
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.
Investing in solar panels now means that you lock in your price of power for the next 30+ years by producing your own electricity.
Studies show that installing solar can increase the value of your property by up to 5%, making it a great long-term investment in one of your biggest assets.
Making renewable energy available for families and businesses across Western Canada is something we are really passionate about. Like you, we are home owners and it probably comes as no surprise that we’ve got solar panels on our roofs. Each day, we expect our system to produce power, look great and stand the test of time. We promise to build your system like it was our own.
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!
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.
