Solar savings for your home

While conventional home and water heating equipment can be costly and contribute to carbon emissions, solar technology comes in many forms and provides energy efficient solutions for heat and power. Take advantage of an abundant renewable resource to heat your home and the water you use every day. Solar home and water heating equipment use sunshine to heat your home and water while photovoltaic panels convert sunshine into electricity to power your home.

Solar equipment requires little maintenance, and rebates for eligible homeowners are available year-round. Solar equipment is certainly a bright idea for homes of any type.
