Many people are interested in getting into solar or renewable energy for either a cottage or for a main residential home. Getting started, however, is not that easy.
The first thing to do is to check your local phone book. You may be surprised at the number of local consultants that are in your area, especially if you are in a more populated section of the country. If you are in cottage country of any description, you are bound to find someone local.
Here are a few solar energy dealers I’ve gotten to know over the years as good, solid businesses that will do the best job that they can for you in helping you with your solar panel or solar water heater installation.
Sun Volts, Ontario
These guys operate out of a few different cities in Ontario, all of which can be found on their website.
Renewable Energy of Plum Hollow, Kingston
This company doesn’t have a website, but they are still the solar dealer of choice for many in the Kingston area.
Nova, Kelowna, BC
Nova’s services are not limited to Kelowna. They will ship nationally, and they are one of the more trustworthy names in the business.
