How do I know if I’ll qualify?
You qualify if your property passes an on-site evaluation and your local electricity provider gives the approval to install PV system on your roof.
What happens if my house does not get approved?
How long will we be without electricity?
Where does the energy produced by my solar panels go?
The clean, renewable energy generated will be used by you during the day or goes directly back into the grid, and is used to power the province.
What approvals are necessary?
What do I do with the emails I receive from the WSP, AUC or Energy Retailer?
Who develops the design?
Do I need to be home for the system connection of the panels?
What happens during a house inspection?
Do the SunSol technicians need access to the inside of my house?
Where do the modules go?
The solar panels are positioned on the roof to tap into optimum sunlight. For residential solar systems, they go on typical shingled or barn steel roofs; however they could be installed on your garage as well.
How are the solar panels attached?
The first thing we install on your roof is a premium flashing system. This protects your roof from leaks. Once it’s in place, we install the aluminum rails. These rails last for years. They are bolted onto your roof rafters or trusses to ensure the panels are attached securely. The solar panels get attached securely on to the rails.
How big is each solar panel and how much does it weigh?
Will this damage my roof?
No. Solar panels actually extend the life of your roof, protecting it from direct sunlight, wind, rain and snow. In the unlikely event of damage caused by the panels, we’re responsible for repairs and maintenance. General roof maintenance is, of course, your responsibility.
Who connects the modules?
The SunSol Tech electricians hook up the solar panels and they work with the local electricity provider to connect it to the grid.
Will you visit my property for inspection or maintenance?
Rarely and only when needed. If we do, we will only come during daylight hours, notifying you ahead of time so you can choose to be present. Should an emergency occur, we’ll come right away.
