No matter the size of your project, from a single family home to a large residential complex or commercial building, solar energy is an efficient, environmentally friendly and cost effective method of powering your home, apartment building, or commercial complex. The benefits of adding Solar into your electricity mix are proven and ready to be taken advantage of. Costs related to electricity are going up and Solar Systems are cheaper and more efficient than they’ve ever been, averaging an 80% reduction in cost in the past 15 years. With no moving parts, no need for batteries, and warranties up to 25 years, Renewable Energy has never looked better.
Okanagan Solar is headquartered in Kelowna, British Columbia, although we offer our expertise throughout Canada and have installed in Ontario, Alberta, and throughout the Northwest Territories. We are Kelowna and Interior British Columbia’s expert on Commercial Residential projects.
Did you know that residential Solar Systems don’t require batteries? This is the most common misconception we hear today. Through what’s called a Net Metering agreement with BC Hydro or Fortis, the Grid is used as storage and whatever power you generate that isn’t immediately used, is sold back to the utility at an agreed rate. This allows Solar in Canada to work on an annual basis, with peak production and credits built in the Summer, to be used and drawn upon throughout the winter.
We believe in a changing world with many advancing technologies that will help us live more efficient and environmentally conscious lives. While many changes can be large and difficult to implement, Solar is a small and simple addition that can provide immediate benefits to the consumer. Reducing annual electricity bills, adding value to a new or old building, mobilising power to places you need, or simply lowering your carbon footprint. Whatever your reason or application we are the local experts that will help guide you to create a lasting project legacy.
We are primarily Okanagan based servicing such areas as Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon, Merritt, Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Lake Country and Revelstoke, but we are registered and have installed throughout Alberta, Ontario and the Northwest Territories.
