Your home solar system will be connected to the grid so you won’t need additional space in your home for batteries. And considering the reliability of Alberta’s grid, most homeowners choose to avoid additional costs of battery storage.

What does it cost to install a solar system on my home?
Solar system costs depend on a few factors, such as the number of panels and equipment required. Current solar pricing varies but ranges of $2.60 to $3.20 per Watt installed. The condition of your roof and any required electrical upgrades may also affect the cost.
Is there a warranty?
Authorized ENMAX solar dealers typically offer one-year warranty on labour and installation. Manufacturer warranties are included with the panels and other equipment.
Do I need to connect my system to the grid?
Our systems do not have battery storage, meaning you’ll need to remain connected to the grid to ensure you have electricity during the night, or when sunlight is limited. An authorized ENMAX solar dealer can help explain grid connections for your area.
Will I save money?
Using a solar system to generate electricity can help you save the money you would typically pay for the electricity you consume. Depending on the size of your system, you could offset all or a portion of you monthly electricity usage. However, because your system is still connected to the grid, you’ll need to pay for other charges such as Transmission and Distribution fees, applicable taxes and similar fees.
Will I be paid for any extra electricity my solar system generates?
Yes, if your system generates more electricity than you need, the extra will be sent to the grid and your account will be credited at your current electricity rate.
Are there government rebates available?
Solar Alberta is a great resource for information about available municipal, provincial or federal rebates.
