HOW IT WORKS
Thanks to government incentives and vast improvements in technology, once expensive and unreliable home solar systems are now completely reliable for decades of use. Our quick and cost-free assessment will show you how it all works, completely custom to you!
Nobody likes a complicated process rife with delays and problems. At mySolar, we are here to remove headaches, not create them.
Our customers always come first.
After all, it’s not just about savings. It’s about you and your family’s life and peace of mind.
At mySolar, we are committed to making the decision to go solar as simple as possible. Let’s guide you through the steps!
Schedule your free consultation with a mySolar Advisor. We will create a custom Solar Energy Report and Solar Design tailored specifically for your home.
A mySolar Expert will survey your property, roof, and electrical panel to ensure the quality of your design and installation.
mySolar will submit your project for capacity approval with your Local Distribution Company (electrical utility), and obtain a building permit on your behalf.
A licensed energy audit partner will get in touch to schedule your pre-installation audit. This is the first step towards receiving your rebates, including the Canada Greener Homes Grant.
We will contact you with your scheduled installation date. Installation is typically complete in 1 day if there are no weather delays.
The Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) will inspect the installation to ensure quality and compliance with regulations.
mySolar will schedule your Local Distribution Company to install your bi-directional meter.
mySolar will drop by to commission the system. Lights On! Sit back, relax, and bask in the sun. Enjoy the wonderful benefits of solar, and thank you for doing your part to make a meaningful impact on our planet.
The post-installation audit will report how much energy has been saved, and how much greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced as a result of your solar installation. Your auditor will then guide you through the easy final steps to receive your rebates, including the Canada Greener Homes Grant and access to the Interest-Free Loan Program.
You’ve got questions, and we have the answers.
Installation & Finances
Maintenance & Repairs
In Ontario, you can take advantage of the net-metering programs offered by your Local Distribution Company (electricity utility company). Unfortunately, in some cases, it is possible that your area may soon be at capacity. If solar interests you, we strongly recommend that you speak to a mySolar Advisor sooner than later — we will apply for capacity on your behalf. In some areas, utility companies have already started rejecting homeowners who want to install solar due to grid capacity.
The installation typically takes 1-2 days, and from start to finish, mySolar delivers projects over an average timeline of approximately ten weeks. Your project can be a little less or a little more — depending on the speed of your local municipality and electricity company.
If installed incorrectly or if cheap materials are used, damage or leaks are possible. Fortunately, mySolar only uses certified and experienced solar installation technicians — our installation teams have an excellent track record with prior experience installing over 5,000 residential solar systems. We use RT-BUTYL flashing for installation, which essentially guarantees no possibility of leaks. Finally, all installations are backed by a 2-year workmanship warranty.
If your roof is old and requires replacement or repair, we strongly recommend making the repairs before installing your solar system. You can choose to replace the entire roof or replace only the section where the panels will be installed — leaving the rest of the roof for later. The great news is that solar panels help protect your roof and significantly extend its lifetime. If you choose to replace your roof later, the system will need to be removed and then reinstalled once the roof is replaced or repaired. The cost of uninstalling/reinstalling can add around $3,000 to your total cost.
Because of safety requirements, your home will also lose power in this situation. This is because regulations require your system to shut down immediately when the grid goes down.
