It’s that time of year when many of us are thinking about home improvements and ways to save on upcoming heating costs while reducing our carbon footprint.
It’s a great time to seriously consider solar panels for your home. We all know where fossil fuels are headed. Hopefully left as “fossils” and in the ground! The marketplace is demanding better and people want sustainable homes.
2017 is the final year to take advantage of Ontario’s microFIT program – an incentive that allows your system to pay for itself, virtually. There will never be another program like this in Ontario, so if you’ve been on the fence, the time is now.
Why go solar?
- It’s good for the environment – it’s clean and renewable.
- It will generate revenue for you - you can sell your excess solar energy back to the grid through Ontario’s MicroFIT program (ending this year!)
- It’s a smart home investment – it will increase the value of your home, in addition to the energy savings each month.
- Installation costs have plummeted.

According to a recent survey by Eco Analytics, 94% of respondents believe there should be more emphasis placed on Solar, while roughly 50% think less emphasis should be put on Nuclear, Oil, and Coal. This shows that people want and are interested in solar, but don’t know how to go solar.
According to a recent survey by Eco Analytics, around 80% of respondents believe people should be doing more to prevent climate change. Solar is an excellent way to lower your home’s carbon footprint while helping offset energy costs.
Some studies have shown that for every $1 of annual energy savings, the value of your home increases by $15 to $20. As well, listings with the words “energy efficient” sold for 5.8% more than comparable homes without these upgrades.
By 2018, the Ontario Climate Change Action Plan will require all homes – that are planning to enter the housing market – to undergo a home energy audit. Going solar, aside from being an appreciating asset, will directly help affect the marketability and value of your home.
