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 syatems will be competitive for many applications in Ontario within 5 years.
