How it works..
Tired of an ever increasing energy bill from FortisBC? We are too.
During our conversation with you, our appreciated customer, we’ll be asking you what your wants and desires are out of a potential solar system. We need to know the whether or not you’d like a supplement to your energy, or a total overhaul.
Our first step will be to do an in-depth on site analysis. We’ll take into account roof dimensions, pitch, and azimuth (orientation to the sun), as well as total receivable sunshine in your geological area, the shade on your property, and coldest conditions expected. – Did you know that solar panels will produce more in lower temperatures? A sunny cold day actually produces more power than a hot sunny day. Simple things like this add to the calculations we must do to match equipment sizes. Most importantly, we can then instruct you, the customer, of the potential energy your property can absorb, along with the array size needed to offset your needs.
After everything is taken into consideration, the hard part begins. – Building, designing, and sourcing your solar panels, racking, inverters, cables, conduit, and all other materials needed to build your solar system.
Our company is insured and bonded. Superior Trades Services has over 70+ years of shared experience in the electrical field.
Save Money On Your Energy Bill
FortisBC only allows a small amount of energy to be used per household before they increase the price per kWh by over 50%. Everyone has experienced a shock in the past when we open up our energy bill which was a lot higher than expected.
This is simply your BEST way to fight back against rising energy costs. The cost for energy increases every single year, but your solar panel installation is a one time set up fee.
Furthermore, most panels come with a 20-30 year warranty, and continue to last for years after that. Depending on your solar size, cost, and your annual power consumption, you can see a return on investment in 10-15 years.
Based on an average of 3.50% utility cost increase per year…
