Once you've approved the quote, we get started right away. While an electrical engineer is drafting your solar design (Single Line Diagram, Solar Layout), a technician will schedule an appointment with you to complete an in-person home assessment. The purpose of this visit is to verify the existing electrical infrastructure, roof quality, and to take the measurements required to ensure your conceptual solar design will fit the reality of your roof vent locations.

Following the design process, we apply for the electrical and microgeneration permits. The permitting process generally takes 2-3 weeks. After approval is granted, we schedule your solar panel installation and get ready to delete your electricity bill!

Residential Solar Assessment and Quote Process

Solar is more than just a financial investment in your home and future - it's also a huge time investment.  As such, we know you'll have a lot of questions like how do solar panels work? And how much do solar panels cost? We'll answer all of your questions and explain all about solar production, solar irradiance, panel positions, and even our recommendations for solar panels and racking in your consultation. 

The process of applying for and receiving the
greener homes grant and loan program can also take time to comprehend. Luckily, we're here for you every step of the way. Our team is well versed in this process, and can bring clarity to give you the confidence to proceed.

Our approach to quoting is generally quite simple. With your address, and electricity bills we can generate a comprehensive quote with pricing, electricity production, and 3D renderings of your home after the installation. We send this directly to your inbox, and allow you time to assess - no high pressure sales meetings here. When you're ready, we can have a discussion and help you get started on your renewable energy journey.

The Residential Solar Installation Process

This is the part where we execute on our promises. Our team makes the residential solar installation process seamless. All we ask from you, is access to the working areas in your home on installation days. That's it!

Procurement & Preparation

High performance athletes have strict training regiments and pregame rituals. Our team is no different. Prior to your installation, we procure and prepare the materials required to have a successful installation. We come up with a pre-job plan, and ensure that everyone on the team knows their role.

Safety is non-negotiable with our installations. Every person on your roof will have fall arrest training, and be tied off... always. Morning safety meetings prior to work beginning are another way we stay grounded and ensure our team is aware of the potential job hazards before something goes wrong.

Installing Solar Panels

Our team comes prepared to complete most installations in 2-3 days. Mornings start early in the summer. This allows us to avoid the hottest hours of the day on top of the roof where temperatures can reach up to 75 Degrees!

Day 1

Day 1 is typically reserved for preparing the roof mounts, racking, and soladeck. This work prepares the infrastructure (wire and mounts) for your solar panels to be installed. This part is not very flashy, but extremely important for a smooth installation.

Day 2-3

On day 2, we install the solar panels on the roof and connect into your home panel. Solar panels are secured to the racking and connected with the microinverters. Critter guard is also installed if required.

Deleting Your Electricity Bill

Before you can harness the power of the sun, the installation must be inspected. We ensure that everything is expedited to allow for the inspection as soon as possible following installation.

After the authority has inspected the installation we can turn on your solar breakers and start producing green energy with your new solar system!

Solar Offset Credits

Solar offset credits (carbon credits) can be a lucrative way to improve your residential solar payback period. Our team can support by connecting you with our partner - Solar Offset. This process is quite easy and requires minimal work to receive the yearly credit allowance.

How are carbon credits calculated?

Carbon credits for residential solar projects correlate with the amount of electricity generated annually by your solar system. This can be estimated based on your solar design size, but is calculated yearly by downloading production data from your micro inverters. The APS Microinverters we typically recommend work great for this program because the data can be downloaded with just a few clicks. We can help you register your system so you can get the full benefits of installing solar and improve your return on investment.

I need to close out 2023 correctly by writing this review of our solar panel installation experience with Evalence Renewables.  Due to a mild break in the weather, Tyler, and his team (Stefan and Igor) were able to do the required electrical work and panel installation in early December. We never felt in the dark, we always had our questions answered on a timely basis and with good humour.  Thank you for a wonderful experience and we wish you loads of success in 2024!

How much do solar panels cost for a 1,500 square foot house?

Before grant funding incentives, the average cost to install solar panels for a 1,500 square foot house will range between $14,000-$20,000. This price will range based on the amount of panels required to offset the home electrical usage. This cost can be offset by the $5,000 greener homes grant + other applicable regional grants. For an accurate estimate for installing solar energy systems to your home in Calgary or Edmonton, request a personalized quote from Evalence today.

How many solar panels will I need for my residential home?

The amount of solar panels needed for your home will depend on your electricity usage, location, and roof orientation. The average solar installation is between 5kW to 10kW of total capacity, which equates to between 10-20 solar panels. 

What other work does Evalence do?

We're more than just a solar installer in Edmonton and Calgary! We call ourselves a renewables company because we're interested in everything renewables and green infrastructure. This includes EV charging, solar systems, battery bank storage, and energy management for residential and commercial.

How does residential solar power work in Alberta?

Solar panels are typically installed on South, East, or West facing roof planes to maximize the sun exposure reaching the solar panels. When solar panels are exposed to sun, a reaction occurs and DC power is produced by the solar panels. DC power is converted to AC power (the type used in your household) by the inverter, and then this power is delivered to your home's electrical system. This power can be stored in a battery, or used by home appliances like AC, hot tubs, fridge, light bulbs, or anything consuming electricity.

Excess electricity is sent back to the grid, and the bidirectional home meter records the total flow of electricity from the house. The amount of electricity exported is credited on the electricity bill to reduce the overall home energy cost. The price you pay for electricity, is typically the price you will receive for your exported electricity in Alberta.

How much money can I save with residential solar panels?

The amount you can save is proportional to the amount you currently spend on your electricity bill. With solar systems, you can design to a maximum of 110% of your home usage. If your electricity bill is $200/month, that's how much you could save with solar. It's important to consider that administration and transmision fees will still be present on your bill, so it can be difficult to offset 100%. Battery storage can assist with reducing these fees.

What factors determine how much electricity residential solar panels produce?

The major factors impacting residential solar production is the design of the roof and shading surrounding the property. South facing roof slopes without obstructions from neighbouring homes or trees will result in the most efficient electricity production.

Are there any government incentives or rebates for installing residential solar in Alberta?

Yes. The most commonly used incentive is the Greener Homes Grant & Loan Program. This program offers a $5,000 grant incentive for installing solar panels, and will bundle up to $40,000 of project costs into a 0% loan.

The Clean Energy Improvement Program can also be utilized to finance residential solar projects. The program is distributed by Alberta municipalities for loans up to $50,000 of projects costs with repayment terms up to 20 years. Interest rates vary between municipalities, but range between (2%-4%).

What is the average lifespan of residential solar panels?

Evalence utilizes the highest quality Tier 1 solar panels available in Canada. These panels come with production performance guarantees of up to 30 years.

What maintenance is required for residential solar panels?

Solar panels are generally maintenance free for home owners. Our systems come with monitoring software which can be utilized by our team, and the home owner to monitor solar production. If the monitoring software determines a panel is underperforming, than a service call would be completed to assess the panel condition.

Can I still use electricity from the grid with residential solar panels?

Yes. Most residential solar systems installed in Alberta are grid-tied. This means the home, and the solar system are connected with the electrical grid. We reccommend this set up because it gives home owners the most flexible and robust solution for their needs.

How long does it take to complete the installation of an EV charger?

The installation duration for an EV charger can take several hours to a day, depending on factors such as the type of charger, the wiring complexity, and any modifications needed for your electrical system. The more complex the installation, the more time required to complete it!
