Solar in Mississauga:
Discover how much you can save by installing solar panels on your Mississauga home.
Mississauga is one of the sunnier cities in Ontario, with an average annual amount of 2170 hours of sunshine. With July being the sunniest month and January being the most overcast, many homeowners in the city can benefit greatly from solar panel installation. Mississauga residents can reap the following benefits with a solar system in their home:
One of the most popular reasons why homeowners choose to install solar panels in their homes is the reduction in energy costs. Since Ontario uses a TOU plan, electricity is charged based on the hours of the day that it is being used. This can be good or bad, depending on your situation. Solar installation can grant you serious savings depending on the angle and size of rooftops, as well as your current electricity rates. A solar panel system may help your standard Mississauga homeowner save up to 50% or more, which in a few years can translate to $1,000s of dollars saved and total recoup on the upfront costs in 8-10 years.
Secondly, installing Mississauga solar panels can greatly increase your property’s total value, and reduce carbon emissions (and utilizing net metering or solar battery storage can result in a full 100% carbon offset.) Solar power is clean and a form of renewable energy, meaning it is never used up.

Is installing solar a good investment?
While it can vary how much of a good investment solar panels in Mississauga are depending on where you live, purchasing a solar power system for your residence and having it installed professionally has been estimated to save most homeowners up to 50%.
On top of the energy reduction savings, you may also greatly benefit from the improved value of your home. Most solar panels will recoup their initial upfront cost in as little as 8 years.
How much does it cost to install solar panels in Mississauga?
The cost of installing solar panels in Mississauga is highly dependent on the style of your home, your roof, its materials, its slope, and the amount of sunshine your house receives. The average range is between that of $10,000-$17,000. Although this might sound like a significant upfront cost, most solar power systems will recoup that initial cost in 8-10 years! Considering most solar panels’ lifespan is between 25-30 years, that’s a great value.
Can you live off of solar power alone?
In a handful of places worldwide, there is the potential for solar power to generate electricity for entire communities. You can, technically, run your home on solar power alone. Solar power has been proven to be extremely flexible as an energy source, even when compared to other renewable energy forms.
However, it depends on your solar system and your home in Mississauga. Going entirely off-grid requires a battery system and management of your energy requirements, and it means you won’t be able to use any power from your utility.
How long does a solar panels system install take?
Generally, a professional installation team will take 1-5 days to complete an install. It depends on the overall specs of your home, the time of the year, the slant of your roof and the type of safety equipment that is required, and the number of solar panels being installed. With CMI, you can expect expedited installation time and nothing short of professionalism as we communicate with you throughout.
To enjoy expedited installation, working with your local experts at CMI Solar is a great way to get your solar system as quickly and efficiently as possible. CMI always communicates with all involved party members to ensure everything is up to snuff and everyone is satisfied.
What happens during a solar power installation in Mississauga?
During a solar power install, you can expect an initial phase where CMI Solar gets into contact with you to discuss your needs, the specs of your home, and asks for proof of your last electricity bill. We’ll mock up an accurate design and send it to you for approval before we begin acquiring permits and then installation begins.
Throughout the process, we’ll be sure to maintain communication with you so that there are no expectations that aren’t met. Usually, installation takes between 1-5 days, depending on the complexity of the overall project.
Our experience with CMI Solar has been very positive. We really enjoyed their business approach and that they treated the project individually with a non-cookie cutter style. This flexibility allowed us to be more hands on and share our input into the project plans. They were very responsive to any questions and supportive throughout the process. Our system installation went rather smoothly, and CMI’s team was able to respond to any deviation with minimal delay. Additionally, to facilitate the new system our electrical panel needed to be expanded to which, CMI was able to provide the equipment and install with excellent service. Overall, the system works great and can’t wait for more sunny days. Thanks, CMI Solar.- Anna Pawel Potemscy
