Get free solar quotes

What you need to know:
  • Cost – The average residential solar installation cost is $15,000 – $30,000 (before tax and incentives). This serves as a very general average. Larger roofs and homes that use more electricity can accommodate larger systems with higher upfront costs.
  • Incentives – The Canada Greener Homes Program provides a $40,000 interest-free loan to Canadian homeowners. Approval can take several weeks and an energy evaluation must be completed before getting solar panel quotes. Learn more about the application process here.
  • Payment – Installer payment schedules vary significantly and rarely align with disbursements from financing programs. This means that you will have to carry at least a portion of the costs with cash or short-term bridge financing like a line of credit.
  • Timing – Getting solar quotes and comparing them takes time. There is no way to rush our process as we will always prioritize quality over speed. The average turnaround time for solar quotes is currently 3 weeks and solar installers are currently booking installations 3-6 months out. The solar quotes we get for you will be valid for 15 days.

If you are looking to install solar panels on your business, farm, condo, commercial building or institutional building please visit our Solar Panels for Businesses page for more information and a separate application form.

How Glean works:

Although, our service is free it also requires a significant amount of time and effort on our end. We pride ourselves on delivering a service that prioritizes quality over speed. We are only able to provide our service for free because we collect a fee from the installer that you choose, only if we facilitated that quote. For that reason, we kindly ask that you wait for us to provide you with our full service before you request additional quotes independently or choose an installer outside our network. If you need quotes quicker, or are already planning to move forward with an installer outside of Glean, our solar quote review service will be a better fit.

Next Steps:
  1. Start by submitting your information to us below. We will review your submission and be in touch within 24 hours.
  2. We send you a no-obligation customized solar panel layout and rough price estimate for your home based on current industry trends
  3. If you are a good candidate for Glean’s service and the rough estimate aligns with your plans and expectations, we will begin the work to get you 3 solar quotes from our network of verified installers. The quoting process can be completed via satellite imagery so installers will not need to come to your home.
  4. Once we get the quotes, we will send you a detailed quote summary PDF document comparing the most important aspects of each quote apples-to-apples. We will also schedule a 1-on-1 quote review call (or virtual meeting) to ensure you understand the differences between each quote and that all your questions are answered.
  5. We connect you with your chosen solar installer and the work begins!
