1. What are the financial benefits of solar energy?

When you install a solar energy system on your property, you save money on your electricity bills and protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future.

2. What is net metering?

Net metering is the system that SaskPower uses to credit solar energy system owners for the electricity produced by their solar panels. With net metering, you only pay for the electricity that you use beyond what your solar panels have generated.

3. How does solar impact my property values?

Studies have shown that Installing a Solar Energy System on your home or business will increase your property value.

4. Do my solar panels produce power when the sun isn’t shining?

The amount of power your solar energy system can generate is solely dependent on sunlight. Therefore, your solar panels will produce slightly less energy when the weather is cloudy, and none at night. However, because of the constant increases in electricity costs, solar remains a very smart investment. Don't forget Saskatchewan is the sunniest Province in Canada too!


5. Do solar panels work in a blackout?

If your solar panel system is connected to the grid, it will shut off in the event of a blackout. This is to prevent emergency responders and electricity utility repair-people from being injured by your panels sending power back to the grid. However, there are certain inverters available that do provide backup power in the event of a blackout when paired with batteries.

6. Is my Solar Generated Power sold back to the utility provider?

Yes, the current SaskPower rebate program is set up to credit your excess power at roughly half your purchase price.


7. Is my roof suitable for solar panels?

Southerly-facing roofs with little to no shade and enough space to fit a solar array are ideal for installing solar. However, in many cases there are other options if your home doesn’t have the ideal solar roof. This will be covered and communicated in your professional site assessment.


8. How long will my solar power system last?

Solar panels are very durable and capable of withstanding the harsh Canadian snow, wind, and hail. Most Solar Modules have a 25-year life expectancy, but there are systems out there today that have been producing for longer than that.
