How will Solar Make You Money?

Electricity usage is measured in Kilowatt Hours (kWh). The amount you pay for electricity is negotiated between you and your retailer. To get an idea of the rate of return, we will multiple the size of the array in KW by the average amount of sun we get. Then we will multiple that number by how many days in a month, then multiply that by your current electricity rate.

Say the solar setup costs $15,000, that’s a Return Of Investment of 6.33% ( $950 ÷ $15000 x100 = 6.33% ). If these were mutual funds, that would be a very desirable return! An R.O.I of a mutual fund investment over the last 10 years of greater then 10% is extremely rare. In 2015 almost 70% of investors lost money! So why not invest in the sun and never lose!

But, what if electricity rates double in the near future? Electricity usage could cost you $2140 annually and that does not include the administration, distribution, and local access fees your utility provider will charge you. At doubled electricity rates, your new R.O.I, with a Monster Electric Solar System, would be at 12.6%! If you factor in the electricity carbon tax, beginning the new year of 2017, your R.O.I. would be at 14.2%! By choosing Solar energy you are eliminating the risk of rising taxes and electricity rates, as well as investing in your future.

Top Reasons to go Solar


Alberta recently launched a $36M rebate program offering homeowners up to $10,000 to ‘go solar.’

No Power Costs

You can stop paying for power AND earn credits by returning surplus power to the power grid.

Plenty o’ Sunshine

Alberta gets 40% more sun per year than Germany, the world leader in solar technology use.


Solar panels easily last 25 years with minimal maintenance and can withstand Alberta’s hail & snow.

A Solar Story From The Owner

Tyler Hrynkewich

“During the 2nd economic slowdown in 7 years, I had some friends take solar courses. After listening to what they learned in their courses, my interest peaked. I started to do my own research into costs, returns, incentives and more. Once I was properly educated it was quite clear that solar is a solid product, especially for the longevity of the panels! So, when I built my house I planned to install a Monster Electric Solar System. Once the system was installed I was generating enough electricity to help power my whole home, and I was so impressed! I’ll be generating my own electricity for the next 25-40 years with zero involvement in the project from now on. My Monster Electric Solar System has reduced my carbon footprint, has saved me a ton of money, and has put money back into my pocket! Once I realized how easy it really was to install and operate, I just had to tell my family, friends, neighbours and clients!”

How Much Do Solar Panels Cost

When it comes to your solar installation, the majority of your cost is just in the hardware itself.  The going rate for a medium sized installation is $3 per watt.  (3x 5KW = $15,000).  The Panels & Inverters will be about 70% of the total cost of the installation!  5% is going to be materials for getting the cabling from the basement and into the attic and then onto the roof. 20% will be labour for the total installation.  The last 5% will be permitting and miscellaneous costs.

Is Edmonton a Good Place for Solar?

Anywhere in Alberta is a great place for solar! Edmonton receives 2345 hours of bright sunshine a year, 325 days with some bright sunshine, and 50% of sunny daylight hours.  When making power from the sun, being one of the sunniest cities in the country is a major advantage!

Why Should I go Solar?

The truth is, you don’t have to. The reality is you will be paying $100-$200 a month for as long as you are alive and in your house! Economically speaking, it makes the most sense to reinvest that money you would be giving to an energy retailer and keep that money in your own pocket or on your roof.  Before any sort of government incentive, the Return On Investment for a solar installation is around 6% – better then a lot of mutual funds over the years! There may be other features of a solar installation that have high value on a moral basis such as choosing sustainable resources, being conscious of the environment and leading a green lifestyle.

How Many Solar Panels Do I need?

A solar installation is 100% customizable and expandable! There is no specific package you buy, it depends on how much available square footage is on your roof and how much energy you want to produce.  Being expandable, you can go as small as 1-2 KW and expand over the years as your budget allows or if you need proof of concept. You could utilize all of your available roof space or go somewhere in between.  At the end of the day, YOU get what YOU want.  This is your home and we will meet what ever YOUR goals are!

How Fast Can You Install Solar Panels?

Really Quick!  Unless you are going with a massive system, we’ll be done, cleaned up and producing power within 2-3 days.  One of the very first steps is to get authorization from the utility provider to turn your house into a micro generator power plant and that process can take up to 3 weeks to get all of the paper work and permits approved.

What is Solar?

Solar Energy, traditionally known as Photovoltaics (PV), harnesses the photons from the sun that are absorbed by a semi-conductor material (silicon) in the solar cell. When the photon has the semi-conductor, an electron is released into the circuit. Solar energy uses natural sun’s rays to generate heat or electricity.

Is Edmonton a Good Place for Solar?

Edmonton has proven to have some interesting and unpredictable weather. Although we may experience all 4 seasons in one day, Edmonton has sun. We are in fact the 2nd sunniest city in Canada! Our lack of cloud cover is what puts us near the top. Having 325 days of measurable sun, Edmonton has a total of 2,345 hours of sun annually!

What About the Dark Edmonton Winters?

No one enjoys the cold Edmonton winters! But, what does enjoy the cold Edmonton winters are the Monster Electric Solar electrical components. Electrical Resistance, is how difficult a circuit is for the electrons to flow, and power your end device. The more resistance in a circuit, the more heat you create and less total power you receive at your load. One major factor effecting resistance is heat. With the colder outdoor temperatures, every component on your roof has a decreased level of resistance, allowing an overall increase of efficiency! Equally more money saved, and more money made!

How Do I Clean the Snow off My Solar Panels?

You won’t have too! Panels placed on your roof are placed at an angle which helps snow slide right off the panel. The snow will also slide right off of your panels because of how warm they will be, as they absorb heat radiation from the sun even in the winter. Much like how the snow melts off the hood and windshield of a black vehicle in the winter. Now, some snow might stick, but being 30-40 feet in the air, your roof is susceptible to quite a bit of wind which should clean the remaining snow from your solar array. If the snow storm doesn’t have any wind, don’t worry! Snow is translucent! Just like how the igloo you built as a kid was bright enough to see inside, or how it’s still bright outside even when it’s overcast. The opacity of snow will allow some light through for your Solar System to continue generating power. Saving and making you money!
