Saskatchewan is one of the best places on Earth for generating solar power, and being an epicentre of the agricultural industry, farmers have the opportunity to invest in their futures by installing solar panels. Investing in solar energy pays off year after year, unlike other standard electrical systems. It is a proactive process for farmers to reduce their electricity costs and to free themselves from rising power bills while using a renewable, sustainable and financially responsible energy source. You can power your harvest by producing your own electricity and enhance your agricultural practices. Combined with incentive programs and tax rebates, you can set up your farm for the future.
Whether you’re a family business, an individual grower, or a country-wise enterprise, EVOLVsolar’s energy experts have experience in agricultural solar power designs that can transform your estate. From the concept to the submission of incentive forms, we can execute the complete solar power service for you. Let our solar company in Saskatoon secure your farm’s future.
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!
Saskatchewan offers a range of energy programs that can help reduce your expenditures and save money on your solar power investments. There are two distinct programs available: net metering and power generation.
Net metering, available with SaskPower, Saskatoon Light & Power, and Swift Current Light & Power, allows homeowners and farmers to generate their own power, which is stored in their generator until they use it. If they exceed their limits, they’ll get credit for future use. The Power Generation Partner Program with SaskPower allows individuals to generate their own power before selling it back to the company. This can be particularly beneficial to farmers, as their generators will have to be 100 kW.
Being involved with these programs can ensure your solar power generation is worth the initial investment. As your partner for solar power, EVOLVsolar believes doing something beneficial for society doesn’t mean you have to do it alone. Compared to other solar companies in Regina and Saskatoon, we will not just help you with your solar panel installation, but advise you on how to get involved with these programs. It’s our job to save you as much money as possible, and aid you with helping the planet when switching to solar power.
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.
