Solar Power Systems - a great investment
Solar power systems have become one of the best investments available to business, institutions and homeowners alike. This has come about because of the rapid decline in the cost of solar panels.
Electrical power from solar panels is fast becoming cost competitive with power from your local electrical distributor and because with a rooftop solar power system your costs are fixed you are protected from further price increases for as long as the equipment lasts (30 years or more). Projecting current price escalation, and solar price reduction, electricity from solar power systems will be competitive for many applications in Ontario within just a few years.
10% Return on Investment
In the meantime you can make up to 10% return on investment today on a rooftop solar power system with a microFIT contract (a 20 year agreement with the Independent Electricity System Operator and guaranteed by the Province of Ontario). These contracts will be offered until the end of 2017 unless quota of 50MW is used.
The effect of climate change on the human environment is top-of-mind with many Canadians and installing a rooftop solar power system is one of the best ways to take positive action. Solar panels inform neighbors and customers that you care about the environment and care about them. Save money, show you care about the environment.

Rob & Cathy in Oshawa
I contacted all BBB listed solar panel installers: Mark from Down-To-Earth Solar Power Inc is definitely down-to-earth! And his company was the only one who actually went up on the roof even BEFORE we had signed any contract to measure and give us several options for a precise layout until we had the one that perfectly fits onto the south and west roof only -- exactly like we wanted it.
