Frequently Asked Questions

How Do Solar Modules Work for Commercial Spaces?

  • Solar panels generate DC electricity, which is inverted to AC electricity (120/240V) during the daytime.

  • Solar panels remain dormant at night until there is enough light to turn on.

  • If more energy is required, it is automatically imported from the grid with no delay.

  • If excess energy is generated, it is sold back to your retailer for a credit on your electricity bill. Energy (kWh) exports are monitored through a bidirectional meter.

Can I go off grid with solar panels?

When you install solar panels on your property, you will still be connected to the grid. This allows you to draw from the grid when your system is not producing all of the power that you need, and send power back to the grid when you produce more than you use. It is possible to go off the grid with a solar energy system that includes battery storage, but it will cost significantly more and is unnecessary for the majority of homeowners.

How Solar Power Works at Night

For the uninitiated, one of the most common questions about solar power is “what happens at night?”.

If the sun isn’t out, your solar panels won’t work, so do you just not have power at night if you go solar? Of course not!

When you have solar power, you’re still connected to the grid. The solar system works in conjunction with the grid.

During the day, your solar system makes more than what your house needs to function at that time. The excess goes back onto the grid and your meter keeps track of the extra going onto the grid.

At night, when your solar isn’t producing any power, any energy you need comes from the utility grid. The meter then measures how much power is coming into your home.

If your solar system is sized correctly, the power going out to the grid will cancel out the power coming into your house from the grid. In essence, you’re using the utility as your solar system’s battery.

If you are thinking about going solar, don’t worry… you don’t have to live by candle light and wood heat at night!

How much do solar panels cost? What is the payback period?

The cost of a solar power system varies depending on the size of installation, your architecture, and your location.  A typical Edmonton, Saskatoon or urban net-zero home solar panel installation will range from $10,000-$20,000 depending on your energy needs. There are many factors to consider when assessing the cost of solar panels in Alberta such as the size of the array, the available roof space, your location within Canada, and the ease of installation.

The payback period of solar power systems will also vary depending on the size of installation, how ideal the location is, and your personal energy consumption.  Systems will generally pay themselves off in 10-15 years but that is a misleading number. What’s important is the long-term economics of solar panels. The true payback of solar panels is best assessed by comparing the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) of solar vs the levelized cost of standard energy (i.e. coal). The levelized cost simply means the total money spent on fuel over 30 years divided by the total amount of energy generated by the fuel. Solar energy has a lower LCOE than standard energy so you save money over a long period.
