Selecting a Contractor

A renewable energy system is a large investment. Trust your system installation to a high quality contractor. Don't be afraid to ask about:

  • Experience -- with systems exactly like the one you're considering;
  • Qualifications -- must be relevant to the job you need done;
  • Insurance -- minimum $2M in liability coverage, WSIB for employees;
  • References -- must be relevant to the job you need done.

Perhaps the most important factor is 'fit'. You need to find a contractor who you feel good about working with. If there isn't a good fit, then stop right away and find someone else. The best way to guage fit is through discussions with the contractor and through references.

Lastly: work with contractors who are members of the Canadian Solar Industry Association.

It has been a great pleasure working with you, the project has gone very smoothly. We are very pleased and we look forward to continuing our relationship with you over the next 20 years as we generate power.
I was a great relief to find Generation Solar, after having numerous unpleasant dealings with my initial installer. Their responsiveness and professionalism were top notch. They represented me in dealings with my equipment manufacturer over a warranty issue and produced results that I don't feel I could have on my own. Most importantly, they did what they said they would and kept me informed every step of the way. I would not hesitate recommending Generation Solar and look forward to a continued relationship with them.
I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the system you and your team installed. Things have been running great. Checking the inverter for the daily output has been part of my routine, and I enjoy counting the kW. Thanks so much for all the work, professionalism and guidance on this project. You and your team are great.
Wanted you to know that Jackson and Geordie were Amazing and very helpful, hard working in the heat. They did an Awesome job and were very tidy, a hot weather bonus is probably in order though they did say they love working for you.
