This kit contains racking for a layout of 2 rows of 9 panels in portrait orientation for a shingle roof. We can tailor the kit to exactly fit your needs for your roof, or ground mount: We can design it with more solar modules, or less, and change the roof layout to fit your roof, or change parts to fit a steel roof. Just contact us and let us know how we can help!
This 6kW Grid Tied Kit includes the major components needed to install a 6.3 kW grid tied solar array on your roof. With electricity prices increasing, there is no better way to reduce your costs while reducing your carbon footprint than with solar PV!
This system is perfect for Net-Metering! The average Canadian household consumes 12,000 kWh of electricity per year, and many use far less. This 6 kW grid-tie system can offset a large part of your electrical consumption, greatly reducing your electrical bill! For more information check out our Net-Metering article.
This package includes APsystems 600 Watt-peak dual-panel micro-inverters. APsystems is the fastest growing brand of micro-inverters, and currently no. 2 in the world. APsystems is known as a very reliable brand and their dual-panel 600 Watt-peak micros are extremely cost effective compared to other micro-inverters on the market. The APS inverters come with (free) panel-level monitoring via the Internet. Pricing with APsystems is just about the same as with a string inverter! Additionally, with these micro-inverters, rapid shut down and squirrel guard are not required which makes for an easier installation and even more savings!
The racking included in this kit is designed for 2 rows of 9 panels in portrait mounted on a shingle roof. We can customize the racking in this system to fit your roof: If you have roughly 400 square feet of shade free roof facing between East and West, we can design a 6 kW solar system for your roof!
Black frame modules: The black frame Hanwha 350 Watt panels make for a great-looking system! We even included black clamps and black end-plates to create a very “uniform looking” and aesthetically pleasing finish. The solar panels do not just look good, they also perform great and last a very long time (25-year warranty)!
Do it Yourself! We can design your system and provide advice through the installation process. If you posses good DIY skills and are not afraid of working on a roof then a Do-It-Yourself grid tied solar installation could very well be in the cards for you: This can save quite a bit of money and make payback and Return-On-Investment significantly better! We have years of experience designing and installing system. We can even help with the application process! If you have questions give us a call or email and we’d be happy to help!
