Get free solar quotes

Here’s what you need to know before requesting free solar quotes with Glean:
  • The average residential solar installation cost is $15,000 – $30,000 (before accounting for the greener homes grant). This serves as a very general average. Larger roofs and homes that use more electricity can accommodate larger systems with higher upfront costs.
  • The Greener Homes Program provides a $40,000 interest-free loan to Canadian homeowners. Approval can take several weeks and must be done before getting solar panel quotes so please apply as soon as possible here. Learn more about the application process here.
  • Some solar installers will require a larger deposit than the 15% provided by the Greener Homes Loan upfront. Additionally, once your installation is complete, there may be delays between when your final payment is owed to your installer and when the final loan amount is paid out. 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.
  • In some situations in Alberta, the solar club allows you to earn a premium for excess electricity sold in the summer.
  • Your solar quotes will be valid for 15 days.
  • Getting solar panels takes time. There is no way to rush the grant application, energy audits, solar quotes or solar installation. We will do our best to keep things moving quickly, but most delays are out of our control and we will always prioritize quality over speed. The average turnaround for solar quotes is currently 3 weeks (if you have already applied for the greener homes program) and solar installers are currently booking into spring/summer 2024.
Here’s how it works:
  1. Fill in your property’s information below
  2. We then send you a no-obligation custom solar panel layout and price estimate based on current industry trends
  3. If 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 comparing the most important aspects of each quote and answer any questions you have over a phone or video call.
  5. We connect you with your chosen solar installer and the work begins!
