Ra Solar designs, installs and maintains solar energy systems for homes and small businesses.

We aim to equip anything with a roof with self-sustained energy.

Why Solar

The new trend of electric cars will increase the city’s energy demand and escalate energy prices. Having an alternative energy source for your home, such as solar, will save you a few bucks.


But financials aside... it’s clean, it’s renewable, and it awesome!

How It Works

Diagram of System and components

Solar Panels: The most important piece of the puzzle, they convert solar energy into electrical energy


Micro-Inverters: They monitor the performance of each individual solar panel and also convert the energy coming out of these panels to electricity that can be used at home


Breaker Panel: Also known as the "Fuse Box", it is in charge of the power distribution at home. The micro-inverters will be directly connected into this box, similar to how the electric utility connection works


House Loads: A general term to describe everything that runs on electricity at home


Grid: Our electrical utility company. It powers the home in the night time and buys back any extra solar energy produced in the day time


Monitoring Hub: A wall-mounted display that collects all the solar energy production data. This data can also be monitored through any web-browser at home

Getting Started

We like to keep things simple. The steps below are designed to keep the project on schedule and everybody informed



1

Sign up with us or give us a call to guide you through the process. Here we will get all the necessary information and set up a date for your home’s assessment

2

Visual assessment. We will visit your home and evaluate the area to see if solar is right for you

3

If your household is eligible, we will show you our preliminary design. If you like what you see, we can move on to the next stage in the project

4

We will create a detailed design for your system and attain all necessary work permits

5

Once the design phase is complete and all permits are in place, we will order all parts and setup a date for the installation

6

On the day of installation, we will install the panels and then teach you how to monitor your new solar energy system

7

Enjoy the sun!

Let's Talk Numbers

We Don't Charge For Initial Costs... So How Do We Pay Our Bills?

Our revenue is based entirely on the quality of our work. So if our panels don't produce any energy, we simply don't charge for them. Check out our video below to have a closer look at our numbers.

Rates

Our Rate BC Hydro Rate (Step 2) BC Hydro Energy Buyback Rate
8 cents per kWh 12.6 cents per kWh 10 cents per kWh

Perks for Home Owners

-Our rate is 20% lower and it will never increase

-Any extra energy produced by the system is sold back to the grid at a profit for the home owner

-Once the total cost of the system has been covered by the monthly payments, we call it even and all future energy generation is free

Perks for Building Owners

-Our rate is over 10% lower and it will never increase

-Any extra energy produced by the system is sold back to the grid at a profit for the building owner

-Once the total cost of the system has been covered by the monthly payments, we call it even and all future energy generation is free

Note: BC Hydro rates were recorded on June, 2015



Don't like monthly bills?


If you would simply like to fully purchase your system up front then we can certainly accommodate. The cost of a system is based on its size and complexity, this would be specified with the initial assessment.
