DIY 10kW Solar System

Our most popular solar system for rural customers is the 10,000 watt solar kit. In Alberta, this system will generate 13,000 kilowatt hours of electricity. And now, the Alberta Solar Incentives will pay $7000 towards the costs.

For this system, we have selected a quality 250W solar module with a 25 year power output warranty. To this we have added microInverters from the world’s second largest manufacturer – APsystems. This system features optimized production by giving each panel its own inverter circuit, so more power will be delivered in snowy conditions.

For the DIY installer, we offer wholesale pricing on the power components as a kit. All you have to do is provide the mounting method and the electrical connection.

Our 10kW DIY Kit includes:

  • 40 250W solar panels with 25 year power output warranty
  • 20 APS MicroInverters, with 10,000W output.
  • Monitoring gateway allows you to watch solar production on your own web page.

Optional extras include

  1. Mounting system with specialized aluminum rails, module clamps, electrical bonding lugs to install the solar on a sloped roof. Typical Package cost: $1695, but we can customize this depending on your layout, roof dimensions and roof/truss construction.
  2. Tilt structure for ground mounting in 2 tiers. Complete kit – you provide screw piles, beams or concrete to attach to. All aluminum and stainless steel. Package cost: $5932. Includes engineered drawings and foundation plans.
