To begin your journey, start by registering for the Greener Homes Grant through the Natural Resources of Canada website, here:
Book an Energy Audit for Your Home
Purchase and Install Solar Panels
Find a local solar installer to purchase and install the solar panels onto your house. The installer will handle everything from pre-design, to installation and commissioning of the solar panels with the local utility company.
Book a Energy Audit Review for Your Home
Once installed, it’s now time to perform a post-evaluation of your homes energy efficiency. This time, the auditor will provide a report that outlines how their recommendations were met, and passed, from the pre-evaluation. You will use this report to submit to the Greener Homes Grant in order to collect your reimbursement.
Collect Your Reimbursement
Take all of your documentation and continue back to the Greener Homes Grant website to complete your reimbursement application. Get paid!
WHY SOLAR Makes Sense!
With the Greener Homes Grant, it’s now easier than ever to afford putting solar panels on your home. With the proper sizing, and installation of solar panels on your home, the following graphics illustrate how you can save money on your electricity bill, or even eliminate it altogether. There are three basic scenarios on how solar panels can save you money:
Using solar energy and the grid
When you install solar panels on your home the electricity they generate is used to offset costs that you would normally incur from using the utility grid. The amount of solar panels you put on your home determines how much electricity they will produce.
Here, the home needs 4.0kW of electricity. The solar panels are providing 3.0 kW of electricity, so the grid is only required to provide 1.0 kW of electricity. This means you are only paying for 1.0 kW of electricity instead of 4.0 kW on your electricity bill.
