Solar in Richmond Hill:
Discover how much you can save by installing solar panels on your Richmond Hill home.
We understand is the idea of installing a new electrical system for your home is off-putting, but there are many benefits to installing solar panels in Richmond Hill. There are plenty of sunshine hours in Richmond Hill, and Ontarian’s are unfortunately facing higher and higher electricity costs with each passing year.
Although Ontario uses a system where electricity is charged based upon the hour it is being used, this isn’t of benefit to everyone. Residential solar panels have many benefits, including powering your home with renewable, clean energy, that helps to lessen your impact on the environment.
But the most popular reason why Richmond residents prefer renewable energy systems to traditional grid-power is the savings. Many homes that install a solar panel system can enjoy up to 100% in savings on their electricity usage.
In addition, homes that have a solar panel system generally see an increased value on the real estate market, making them worth more when it comes time to sell. Richmond Hill is a great place to live, and an even better place to have solar panels installed. Consult with CMI’s solar panel installers when you’re ready to begin.

Is installing solar a good investment?
Can you walk on solar panels?
You can walk on solar panels the same way you would walk on any other part of your roof. You will not get electrocuted. Sometimes, it’s essential to do this so as to either do repairs, do maintenance and cleaning, or during the installation process.Although keep in mind that walking on any part of your roof is never a good idea unless you have the correct safety equipment, a ladder, and are being mindful of your footing so as not to slip and fall. Walking on solar panels runs the same risk as walking on any other part of your home.
What can I expect after installing solar panels in Richmond Hill?
After you’ve installed solar panels in Richmond Hill, you can expect a couple of things. For one, you’ll have an immediate home value increase. Installing solar panels boasts a significant ROI, especially for new homeowners who are looking for ways to be more environmentally conscious. You’ll start to see reductions in your energy bill, a decrease of your carbon footprint, and potential backup power/partial immunity against power outages.Although not all of these changes are immediate, these are the things you may be able to expect within the first few months of having installed your solar panel system.
What different kinds of solar panels are available?
There are a few different types of solar panels, and the type of solar panel that you need may be highly dependent on the type of residence you have, your power needs, and the environmental conditions of your home. While there are upwards of 11 different types of solar panels, CMI Solar currently offers smaller all-black panels designed for complex roofs and larger silver/black panels for people with large roof areas and higher energy uses.We also offer multitudes of sizes from one of the best solar panel manufacturers in the world, LONGi. 100% of our transportation and logistics comes from LONGi, which means we have immediate stock availability and some of the most reliable panels in the world.
What happens to solar power when batteries are full?
A solar power battery, typically a lithium ion battery, is used to contain excess solar energy when your system generates excess electricity during the day. A solar battery, when full, stops absorbing energy. That battery will then be used to power your home during times where your solar system is not actively generating electricity.
I purchased an EV charger and they had it installed quickly. No complaints here.- Michael B
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
