Solar in Brampton:
Discover how much you can save by installing solar panels on your Brampton home.
The city of Brampton is an excellent place to live.

There’s so many benefits to installing solar panels in Brampton.
The first and foremost benefit of installing solar panels in Brampton, and often why many homeowners will choose solar panels as alternative energy, is its significant reduction in energy costs. The overall savings may depend upon the angle of your home’s roof and its size, as well as current electricity rates in your area. Since Ontario uses a “TOU” plan, where customers may be billed different amounts based upon when they use electricity during the day, exact savings amounts can vary. A properly installed solar system can save an Ontario homeowner up to 50% or more with solar panel installation. In Brampton, over the years this can translate to $1,000s of dollars saved.
Installing solar panels in Brampton may also spike the value of your property, which in turn can reduce overall carbon emissions.

How long does a solar install take?

Is installing solar panels cheaper than electricity?
While purchasing solar panels in Brampton is a higher upfront cost than purchasing electricity from a utility provider, homeowners who install a solar system in their home can reap a multitude of great benefits, such as a reduction in carbon emissions by utilizing renewable energy, reduced electricity bills, and high home value.
Ultimately, while buying solar panels in Brampton may have a higher price tag upfront, your electricity costs will be mediated through your bills. The longer you have your system, the more savings you will reap.
Are solar panels worth it in Brampton?
Are solar power worth it in Brampton? Work through the calculations with the help of CMI Solar to determine if solar power and a solar system is right for you and your home. Theoretically, the overall benefit of installing a solar system can be evaluated by using what’s referred to as a discounted cash flow method, which utilizes outflows (installation costs at the beginning of the project) and inflows (the offset of electricity costs, both directly and via net metering.)
On average, Brampton sees about 2170 hours of sunlight annually, with July being the sunniest month and January having the lowest amount of sunshine. Depending on where you live exactly, you may be able to get the best benefits from installing a solar system.
Are solar panels free once installed?
Transparency is key. Solar panels have a certain upfront cost, on top of additional long-term costs such as maintenance, repairs and replacements, and potentially cleaning costs.
However, these costs are actually relatively low and you won’t typically encounter many issues wherein you’ll face many unexpected costs when your solar power system is installed correctly in Brampton. Most solar panels are designed to last upwards of 20 years and require very little upkeep during this time. You will want to keep an eye on the condition of your system, particularly after hailstorms and heavy snow events, and you should monitor your system’s energy production levels to assess any potential issues.
Repairs and replacements are also a possibility, but unlikely. If your solar panels are damaged due to falling trees, hail, or lightning, they might need to be replaced. Still, most solar warranties are valid for 10-25 years, so if the incident falls within that timeline, you should be OK.
Finally, other costs might include hiring a professional cleaner to clean your solar panels. This could cost you around a few hundred dollars per cleaning. If you have tall trees around your property that prevent sun from reaching your panels, you may also want to pay to have those trimmed regularly.
How much does it cost to install solar panels in Brampton?
The average cost to install a solar panel system in Brampton ranges between $10,000 to about $17,000. Variation exists because every home has a different roof, roof slope, roof size, electrical needs, etc. Larger homes with higher electricity needs may pay more for their solar panel system installation than smaller homes.
How long does a solar panel battery last?
Most residential solar battery units will last between 5 to 15 years, depending on the manufacturer. You’ll almost certainly require 1-2 battery replacements in the future throughout your solar panels’ 20-30 lifespan. Luckily, this is an easy task. Having a solar battery is a great investment anyway, and it can be a huge aid if you want to move off your grid entirely.

I was surprised at how quickly CMI Solar was able to install my EV charger. It looks great on my garage wall and charges my Tesla very quickly. Now I never have to pay to charge my car again!- Joel Smith
Great customer service and they kept their word!!! CMI Solar communicated where we were in the process of getting our panels, what step was next AND time frames in which we could expect things to happen. If we had any questions, they always promptly answered our calls. The guys who came to install the panels and came for inspection were very nice, respectful and prompt. I honestly couldn’t say anything bad about CMI Solar. We’re also happy that we chose to go solar with them.- Paula Waller
