Systems

Edcon Energy knows Solar…

We offer such a broad spectrum of systems and installation types it’s difficult to list … if you don’t see it here it doesn’t mean we don’t do it, just ask. We are your one stop shop for all types of products and things Solar.

Here are some of the Systems we install:

Grid Tied Systems (MicroFIT/FIT Systems)

Grid Tied systems connect directly to the Ontario hydro grid and feed power into the grid for use by all hydro consumers.

A government subsidy program means these systems can earn a substantial return on your investment. This, together with a simplified connection process due to FIT program means these systems are the most common.

Systems consist of solar panels, either on roof or tracker/ground mounts, inverters to convert DC voltage to AC voltage and hydro switches and a meterbase that feeds and monitors power directly into your existing onsite hydro infrastructure.

PROS:

  • little maintenance
  • no batteries
  • profitable due to FIT subsidies & 20 yr contract

CONS:

  • eligibility requirements
  • numerous connection restrictions
  • limited sizing requirements
  • Ontario Content regulations

We offer fully custom, turnkey solutions for all types of “Grid Tied” systems including sloped shingle & steel roofs, flat commercial roofs and ground based trackers and racking solutions. All systems are custom designed and site specific depending on your needs and budget.

Please contact us for free site assessment and quote.

Off Grid

Off Grid systems produce power on a specific site and the power is stored and consumed onsite usually without any external hydro grid connection. Systems typically have secondary power generation capabilities such as gas or diesel generator.

These systems are most common in areas where there is limited hydro grid connections or with property owners that wish to live “off grid” with no ties to local utilities such as back woods cabins, hut camps and vacation properties. These systems are particularly popular in Northern regions where connecting to existing hydro grid can be cost prohibitive.

The systems consist of solar panels, either on roof or tracker/ground mounts, large battery banks (that store the power), charge controllers that manage the charging process for the batteries, inverters to convert the battery DC voltage to AC voltage that is fed into properties 120/240 volt hydro service.

PROS:

  • No hydro grid connection fees
  • No hydro utility bill
  • Offers self sufficiency

CONS:

  • Batteries require periodic & mandatory maintenance, and replacement
  • Possible limited power availability
  • upfront costs

We offer fully custom, turnkey solutions for all types “Off-Tied” systems including sloped shingle & steel roofs, and ground based trackers and racking solutions.  All systems include proper battery and cabling sizing etc. All systems are custom designed and site specific depending on your needs and budget.
