Residential Solar Panel Systems

If you are a homeowner with at least 850 square feet of south facing roof, or a block of largely non-arable land, you may find that the MicroFIT program will allow you to install a solar panel system that will start generating revenue immediately. If you are a renter in an apartment building, or a member of a condominium project, you may wish to champion the cause of commercial solar panel systems to those in a position to arrange such a purchase.

For homeowners, the benefits are identical to commercial landowners, although you would be covered solely by the MicroFIT program, without the need to consider the FIT program (unless you had an unusually large roof space or land on which to place solar panel systems).

Net Metering is the Future

The future of renewable solar is the new Ontario Net Metering  program where you generate almost all the electricity you use at your home or business. Click here to find out more.

Get paid to turn your home into a green building

Imagine having the Government of Ontario pay you for the electricity you generate from your roof for the next 20 years. For families committed to protecting our environment, there are few household choices as consequential as embarking on a 20-year solar panel project to reduce our reliance on dirty energy and drop the costs of solar. By locking-in the rates you receive for the power created by your solar panels, you would still be receiving financial dividends when your babies have grown up and are going to university: this long-sighted ecological lesson you will be teaching them may well cover the cost of their eventual tuition. To investigate the sort of costs and revenue expectations available for your property, please determine your roof area and the direction it faces, then give Global Point energy a call to speak with our experts.

Increase your building’s value

If you choose to purchase your own solar panel system, our turnkey photovoltaic solar system will cause the value of your building to increase. Even more so than renting your roof, having 20 years of guaranteed income paid directly by the Government of Ontario’s Ontario Power Authority represents a substantial asset in calculating the value of your building, come the day it is sold or used as equity to secure loans.

Need a new roof?

Regardless whether you rent or purchase your solar panel system, we will first have our engineers conduct a “roof diagnostics analysis” to confirm the fitness of the roof over the next 20 years. Should the roof need repairs or replacement, we will provide upgrades sufficient for the life of the agreement and simply roll the cost into the overall payment schedule. So, in addition to your solar panels bringing you income, you also get a new roof.

Don’t like paperwork?

Our turnkey solar panel system includes navigation of all Government regulations, approvals and fees: only your signature is needed, not your patience. Likewise, we’ll provide explanations in plain English for all engineering calculations and related contracts so that the process is never confusing or overwhelming. This includes ensuring that all components meet the Ontario Content Requirements (giving you full manufacturer warranties), arranging all Grid Connection costs, Hydro, LDC, ESA approvals and application fees. And should you need help financing the purchase, we have relations with lending institutions who are already familiar with our products.

Remote Monitoring

Internet monitoring polls your solar plant on a 24/7 basis and informs you of any production problems or maintenance issues requiring your attention. The monitoring website records all production data and can compare results year-to-year to let you know when production significantly differs from normal.
