Guelph Solar Mechanical Inc., installers of photovoltaic PV solar panel systems, solar thermal hot water systems and solar pool heaters in Guelph, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Puslinch and Wellington County, Ontario.
If you have a rooftop space with at least 15,000 sq. ft., you can benefit from participating in the Solar Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) program with the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). The FIT program is open and accepting applications this summer.
Guelph Solar is working with local renewable energy co-operatives to complete rooftop solar projects in Wellington, Guelph, and Peel. We apply as the highest priority Contract Capacity Set-Aside co-op projects to greatly increase the chances of projects being approved. In the last application round we received 100% approval with our 51%/49% Co-op/Facility Owner model.
Criteria of a good solar roof (Contact us for a free assessment):
o There is capacity on the local electrical grid to allow solar power to be added.
o The roof of the facility is in good condition and sloped.
o Southerly roofs are highest-performing, but East-West roofs also work.
Guelph Solar will:
1. Perform a Pre-FIT consultation to determine that there is capacity to connect.
2. Assess your facility to estimate the energy production.
3. Budget the solar photovoltaic project and develop part ownership proposal.
4. Perform preliminary structural assessment.
5. Apply to the IESO for a FIT contract.
The next application window is anticipated to open this summer, so act now to ensure we can get your project in the queue!
