Residential Solar

Solar energy is the most effective way for homeowners to reduce electricity costs. Because solar power is cost free (after it’s installed) and solar is obviously an abundant and renewable source of energy, homeowners can easily take advantage of this clean power source and gain the benefits. 

Take Advantage of Incentives
and Rebates

SaskPower, Saskatoon Light & Power and the City of Swift Current electricity customers are all eligible to receive a one-time rebate, equivalent to 20 per cent of the eligible costs of a solar power system to a maximum payment of $20,000, until 2021.

Another added benefit of residential solar is that it will give you the ability to turn your electricity meter backwards through the net-metering program. Yes, this means you, as a homeowner, can store your excess power in the grid as credits for future use!

Increase Your Home’s Value

Buying a home with solar panels translates into lower electricity costs. Lower energy costs will increase a home`s attractiveness on the market, similar to homes with low property taxes, homes close to schools and parks and homes with good home energy ratings.  

Reliability and Performance

Solar panel manufacturers include a 25-year power producing warranty; the solar industry specifies 87.5% performance after 25 years.

The real lifespan of solar panels is much longer – your solar panels will likely generate a good amount of electricity 30-40 years down the line.

Solar is a Secure Investment

Utility companies historically raise electricity prices and there is clearly an upward trend that is going to continue well into the future. With the inevitable implementation of carbon taxes on utilities – they will be forced to pass on the increased costs of burning fossil fuels to you the homeowner.

With solar energy and simple math, it’s easy to calculate how much electricity will be generated, by your solar system and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 25 years (fixed energy costs).


Great for the Bottom Line,

Great for the Planet.
