A typical home in BC with 16 solar panels can generate 4,400 kWh of electricity over a year – enough to power major home components for close to six months. If you want to experience the same level of energy-efficient and power, contact British Columbia’s leading solar company EVOLVsolar.

While most rural residents realize that British Columbia isn’t the sunniest place in Canada, it still has more solar irradiation on a daily average than Germany – the world leader in solar. That high level of solar irradiation means you don’t need lots of blue skies and sunshine to profit from solar power. You just need a team that understands your region and the density of the area to create a solar power system that can transform your energy output. EVOLVsolar is that team.

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 experts in solar energy, we understand the finer details of the provincial government’s incentive programs, particularly their “Net metering” system. This system credits residents and businesses who generate electricity for their own consumption and exports excess energy back to the utility grid. It’s a cost offset that can significantly save thousands of dollars a year. To be eligible for the program, you must be the owner of the electricity generator, connect to the utility grid, use solar energy and have an aggregate capacity of no more than 100 kW. While this might sound simple, there are a lot of little caveats that can deny your eligibility for this program.
EVOLVsolar won’t let this happen. We can help you navigate these intricate details so that you can qualify for the program, as well as assist with financing the solar panel cost in BC. Don’t miss out on the chance to take advantage of BC’s net metering program by letting us help you today.
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.
