Solar Energy FAQs2022-02-21T17:52:53+00:00

Frequently Asked Questions.

What is the lifespan of solar panels?2022-03-08T14:40:46+00:00

The current industry standard is 25 years with a 10 -12 year warranty. Generally, yes, that does come with a matching 25 year performance warranty directly from the manufacturer.

What size system do I need?2022-03-08T14:41:22+00:00

The size of your solar energy system will depend on how much electricity you consume on an annual basis and how much space is available to accommodate your PV array. The best thing to do is to get in touch with us so we can review your consumption, and recommend the best size solar system that will meet your needs.

What happens if my system has shade on it?2022-01-31T18:17:18+00:00

Ideally your panels should be installed south facing with minimal to no shading however, if your system is partially shaded at points throughout the day there are alternative solutions available.

Does my system work in the winter?2022-01-31T18:18:27+00:00

Yes, your system will generate power in the winter, and as an added bonus the panels produce heat which will melt light snowfall. However, if your panels are covered in snow they can’t produce electricity. Snow generally isn’t heavy enough to cause structural issues with your panels, however, we do recommend cleaning off masses of snow so it doesn’t interfere with your production rate.

Does solar add value to my property?2022-01-31T18:19:08+00:00

Yes! Installing a system on your property is basically adding equity back into your home.

How long does installation take?2022-01-31T18:19:49+00:00

The physical installation varies on the size of the system. It’s best to talk to one of our experts to determine the size of your system and then we can give you an estimated time on installation.

How do I MONITOR production of my system?2022-03-08T14:42:36+00:00

All of our systems provide intelligent online monitoring and analysis software.

What should I expect for maintenance?2022-03-08T14:43:40+00:00

We recommend regular maintenance schedules for Commercial and Agriculture PV systems, however for residential projects maintenance is less frequent. Keep in mind panel systems are made of durable tempered glass and require little to no maintenance for the 25 to 35 years that they will generate power. If something does happen, most equipment manufacturers include warranties, although warranty terms depend on the brand.

Will my system still produce on cloudy days?2022-01-31T18:21:22+00:00

Yes your system will produce on cloudy days, however production may be minimal due to low irradiance of sunlight.

Is my roof suitable for solar?2022-01-31T18:21:54+00:00

The most ideal situation is a roof southern facing with no shade and enough space to fit enough panels to offset your consumption. However, we have optimized many systems that needed a work around. Call us for a free consultation

Well hard to believe it has been a year since our solar went live Total system production for year 1 is 40 312 Kwhrs, 29467 sold to MB hydro and 15 965 Kwhrs bought from Mb Hydro This includes charging 2 electric cars (chevy bolts) since August 2021 So all around I am a pretty happy camper.

We are so glad Imran has started his own company. He is very good at what he does, professional, easy to talk to and very good with communication. He takes pride in his work and it shows. We will continue to use Vibes Energy for any and all of our solar needs.
