WINNIPEG, MB: Powertec Solar, a leading solar panel installation company, is ramping up production to keep pace with the increasing demand for solar systems. In light of the newly announced Solar Rebate Program by Efficiency Manitoba, more Manitobans are seeking solar installations in their homes and businesses.
The Solar Program Rebate is available to all homeowners who purchase solar photovoltaic systems connected to the Manitoba Hydro grid. For every watt installed on a residential home, homeowners can save $0.50 up to a maximum of $5,000. The solar system must be installed through an Efficiency Manitoba supplier. Pre-approval is not required.
The new rebate can be combined with the Greener Homes Grant for additional savings. The Greener Homes Grant is a federal incentive for homeowners that provides up to $5,000 toward the cost of a solar installation.
Homeowners can also finance their solar PV system installations through the Greener Homes Initiative. This is a federal program that provides an interest-free loan of up to $40,000 with a repayment term of 10 years.
In total, homeowners can use both the Efficiency Manitoba rebate and the Greener Homes Grant to save up to $7,500 on a 5kw system and $10,000 on a 10kw system.
Powertec Solar is training new crews to meet the rising demand for solar installations in Manitoba.
“There has never been – and likely never will be – a better time to get started with residential solar in Manitoba,” said Jacob Kettner, a partner of Powertec Solar. “By combining both rebates, homeowners can save up to 50% or more on the cost of installing a solar system.”
Businesses can also use the Efficiency MB Solar Rebate Program to make renewable energy more affordable. For commercial solar system installations, the rebate offers up to $25,000 in savings. Businesses must have their installation projects pre-approved by Efficiency Manitoba to qualify for the rebate.
Powertec Solar offers high-quality solar panel installation services to clients across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Ontario, and Nunavut. The company installs grid-tied, grid-tied with a battery, off-grid, and micro-grid solar systems both for commercial and residential use cases.
