Glean is a broker of solar quotes that was built by Canadians to make solar easier for Canadians.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Provide us with some basic information about your property here.
  2. We will send you a no-obligation custom solar panel layout and price estimate based on current industry trends and provide assistance with grant and loan programs.
  3. If that rough estimate aligns with your plans and expectations, we will begin the work to get you 3 solar quotes from our network of local & verified solar installers.
  4. Once we get the quotes, we will send you a detailed quote summary (including an apples-to-apples financial analysis) comparing the most important aspects of each quote and answer any questions you have over a phone or video call.
  5. Once you choose which installer is best for you, we will make the connection and the work begins!

With Glean, there’s no back-and-forth with multiple installers. You get our unbiased opinion to help you make the best decision for you and your family!
