It is important to understand that the design stage of installing Solar is the most important.

“Does Greenfoot perform solar site analysis assessments?”

Absolutely! In most cases, this is the first step to see if solar is right for your project. Some locations are not right for solar because of shading and geographical reasons. Our solar advisors have been trained in this field and have the right tools to determine how efficient the location is and how much energy will your system provide in the year. It is important to understand that going solar is one of the last steps in becoming energy independent since the first steps are to ensure that your building consumes as little energy as possible and then you look at off-setting your consumption. The less you consume, the less you will need to offset. Simple right?

“Are you certified to install Solar systems?”

Greenfoot is certified by the Canadian solar institute and also have licensed Red Seal electricians that will install and service your systems.

“How much does a typical system cost and how much will it produce?”

This is the most commonly asked question and the short answer is: “It depends!”
Every system install has different variables such as mounting options, size of system, inverter type, storage vs no storage (batteries) and other variables that will affect the price. In most cases, the bigger the system, the better the price per watt. The first question you need to ask yourself is how much do you want to offset and we then size the system according to that $ amount.

“Can you at least give me a “ballpark” on how much it costs to go solar?”

Ok, if you insist:
