How Solar Power Saves you Money

Compared to conventional hydro power, solar power can save you money in a variety of ways. These savings are produced by:

Lower Electricity Costs

Solar panels allow you to run devices in your home without depending on power from BC Hydro. This allows for exceptional cost savings over time that quickly offset the price of panel installation. Many homes can even attain complete energy independence, minimizing electricity costs throughout the year.

Selling Power back to BC Hydro

By utilizing solar panels that are connected to the grid, homeowners can sell excess electricity back to BC Hydro. This allows for additional income alongside cost savings, optimizing electrical costs for your home. It is important to note that not all homes can be connected to the grid. We recommend reaching out to our experts to see if your home can be connected.

Increasing the Value of Your Property

As solar power continues to grow in popularity, solar panels will become a more desirable feature for any home.  That is why adding a solar panel connected to the grid will increase the value of your property. This further enhances value and return on investment, making solar panels a viable choice for many homes.

Various Incentives

Although BC does not currently have any rebates at the provincial level, it is the only province that offers total PST exemption for solar power. There are also many other incentives available to home and business owners from BC Hydro and other companies. These benefits allow you to minimize costs, further saving you money over time.
