Solar Panel for Grid-Tied System

Empower Your Home with Solar

Hakai Energy Solutions can help you take control of your home energy costs with high-quality solar panel installation. Take advantage of both solar power and grid power to create an efficient and reliable system for your home.

What is a residential grid-tied solar system?

A grid-tied photovoltaic system is simply a home solar system that is interconnected with the utility electrical grid. This means that the home can draw from both power sources and have an efficient and uninterrupted supply of power.

If the solar power system is not producing enough electricity, it will start pulling from the grid, and if it produces more than necessary, it will put energy back into the grid which is stored as a credit for future power usage.


Benefits of a grid-tied home solar system:

  • Save money on your monthly power bill.

Solar panels can save you thousands of dollars on electricity bills over their lifespan and offer a sustainable and environmentally friendly way to power your home. Contact us for a free estimate.

  • Invest in your energy independence.

Adding a solar installation to your home will increase the value of your property and the addition of a Tesla Powerwall can bring you closer to energy independence.

  • Lower your family’s carbon footprint.

Solar panels are a zero-emission source of clean energy for your home and with the addition of an EV charger, you can help to fight climate change by powering your car with the sun.

  • Benefit Financially

Once your investment has paid off, you’ll be generating a return on your investment for approximately 20 years. An investment in a solar energy system is secure and is linked to the escalating cost of utility-generated electricity. When BC Hydro rates rise, your investment value grows.

Is a residential solar system right for you?

When making an investment in solar panels, you need to know what’s possible for your location. Hakai’s experienced crew can help you find a home energy solution that works for you and your unique situation.

The first step is a free call with a qualified installation specialist. They will focus on your goals, space restrictions, budget, and structure. They will then look at your site location with satellite imagery to measure and map the structure so that they can give you a preliminary quote.

Hakai’s surveying crew will also come to your site and develop a model of year-round sun exposure and shade points. So before any work starts you’ll know the energy production potential and cost of your home solar panel installation.
