This kit contains racking for a layout of 2 rows of 10 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 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.
The kit is also a great 6 kW MicroFIT solution, to capture the higher rate for 6kW-and-under systems! With MicroFIT coming to a close in Ontario there is no better time than the present to install a 6 kW solar system of your own! This system gives you the ability to earn cash! Up to $2,170 per year! That means your system’s initial materials investment could be paid back in just 5 or 6 years! For more information check out our article on the MicroFIT program.
This package includes APsystems 500 Watt 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 500W 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 10 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-On-Black: The Black on Black Heliene 300 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)! The Heliene solar panels are manufactured in Ontario, Canada!
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!
