Farm Solar Panel Systems

Let the Sun be Your Farm’s Quota

Global Point’s Farm Solar program can help farms that struggle to operate within their quota. Solar offers possibilities for farmers wanting to squeeze more profit out of their operation. One of these is to cut electrical and heating costs and/or increase overall income by offsetting electrical expense by producing your own electricity.  The financial incentives are significant.

Net Metering is the Future

The future of renewable solar is the Ontario Net Metering  program where you generate almost all the electricity you use at your home or business. In addition to familiar solar hot water systems, many farmers are taking advantage of this Net Metering program to offset their electrical costs with self-generated electricity. With experience organizing solar generating plants on a municipal utility level, Global Point Energy is easily able to handle the needs of even very large farms.

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. Having reduced electrical expenses goes a long way to increasing your property’s value.

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.

Hate paperwork?

Global Point Energy specializes in the installation of residential, agricultural and commercial solar energy systems of all sizes. Our turnkey solar panel system includes navigation of all Government regulations, approvals and fees: only your signature is needed.

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 approvals and costs, IESO (Independent Electrical System Operator), LDC (local distribution company), ESA (Electrical Safety Authority) 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.
