GRID-TIE SOLAR SYSTEMS
Solar across Canada
The majority of Canada is covered in sunshine, and has excellent potential for solar panels in Regina. As seen on the map below, both off-grid and grid tie solar systems do wonderful.
Solar for Residential
Proudly serving Lumsden, Regina, White City, and Southern Saskatchewan.
Our residential solution is a grid-tie solution, where the power produced by the solar modules is converted to AC power, and used by the loads in the home, while excess power is sent back to the grid, for credits on your SaskPower bill. The team at Kelln Solar will design the system, supply and install the array(install only available in Saskatchewan) and assist the owner in navigating the paper work required by Saskpower to ultimately connect to the grid, and begin reducing their monthly power bill.
Our urban residential solution will require the modules to be mounted to the roof of the dwelling. Each module will be paired with a microinverter
In rural settings, it’s often advantageous to take advantage of the space available, and install a ground mount system, when designing ground mount solutions we often use a string inverter, rather than microinverters.
Grid-tie solutions in Saskatchewan don’t typically include batteries. The Saskpower grid is reliable and outages are often short-lived. However, should you have mission critical appliances in your home, we can design and install a system with back-up power capabilities.
Solar for Commercial
Our commercial solar solution accommodates single phase and 3 phase power, and can be mounted on a sloped roof, a flat roof, or on the ground. The commercial incentive program in Saskatchewan mirrors the residential incentives, and those who install solar are eligible for a 1 time rebate of 20% of the installed cost of a solar array. Commercial solar installations can help avoid costly demand charges from the utility and can provide operating cost certainty for years to come by reducing the amount you’ll spend on power for the next 30 years. The investment in solar panels qualifies for accelerated depreciation for tax purposes, allowing for a faster pay pack period.
Flat-roof solar is generally done using a ballasted racking system to avoid penetrations and the possibility of leaks. Kelln Solar has partnerships with strucutal engineering firms to offer a complete turn-key solution, including the structural engineers report for the additional load of the solar array.
Additionally, Kelln Solar offers solar water heating solutions for your commercial building. Use the power of the sun to heat water for in-floor heating, processing or to supplement your hot water heater and save on operating costs, by utilizing the free resource of the sun.
