Myth 1: There is not enough sunlight in Canada
The are thousands of Solar Powered installations in Canada debunking this myth. In some areas conditions can pose a special challenge. However, with an appriately designed Solar system, it can give you reliable service for many years even in remote locations.
Myth 2: Solar power systems are not efficient in a cold climate
Photovoltaic systems are actually more efficient in colder temperatures than in hot weather. Efficiency is based on light and not heat. Electons in a Photovoltaic cell flow more easily in bright cold environments.
Myth 3: Solar power systems are not proven or approved technology
Solar power have evolved enough to be connected to your local power grid; known as a grid-tied system. Its CSA and UL approved. Warranty on Solar Voltaic cells can be up to 25 years on the panels.
Myth 4: Solar power system are too expensive
Solar photovoltaics have come a long way since the 1950's when they were first invented. The fabication techniques have improved to a point where the price is dropping. As photovoltaics become more popular, the price will drop even further.
