Top 5 Reasons to Install Solar Panels

Solar panel installations have become increasingly popular in southern Alberta. And is it any wonder? This is truly a land of plentiful sunshine. So, if you’re on the fence, here are a few reasons why you should consider installing solar panels:

1. Cost Savings

Solar panels may initially require an upfront investment, but they can eventually pay for themselves through reduced electricity bills and the ability to sell energy back into the grid (check with your provider for options).

2. Eco-Forward

If carbon footprint and energy choice is important to you, installing solar panels is a great way to lower your emissions and know you’re doing good by the environment. Shifting our perspective from single energy source to multi-source drives innovation and consumer choice.


3. Increased Home Value

Solar panel systems will add value to your home or business and make it more attractive to prospective buyers. Modern solar panel systems typically have a lifespan of up to 30 years, meaning they could potentially yield greater returns down the line if you decide to sell the property in the future.

4. Tax Credits

Solar panel installations come with various tax credits in Alberta. This means you can save money when filing your taxes. Solar panel systems also qualify for grants and rebate programs, so you could get a good chunk of your investment back.

5. Energy Price Resilience

With the rate caps removed in 2019, Albertan’s continue to face unpredictable energy costs. But, by having solar panels installed in your home or business you can offset that increase and even make money on the power you generate.
