Real Customers, Real Savings
Virtuoso did a wonderful job of our 10.7 kW install. They have been around for any questions, and I felt their prices were extremely competitive. Great team!
Our new solar installation came online roughly a month ago and we are so pleased with the final product! Virtuoso was so easy to work with throughout the entire process – from taking the time to educate us on how we can get the most of our daytime generation to helping to push the EEA on rebate status. We definitely did our research beforehand and became interested in Virtuoso because they had great reviews. We decided to proceed with Virtuoso because they offered the most competitive package and they were the most candid during the in-home consultation. We would highly recommend Virtuoso to anyone!
We are very pleased with our 7.56kw solar system that Virtuoso Energy installed. The initial customer service, installation and aftercare was excellent from beginning to end. The company stands by its service and are very passionate about the technology. We fully recommend Virtuoso Energy for your solar installation!

Calgary Solar FAQ
How does solar energy work?
Solar panels are installed on your home or business’s roof to collect energy from the sun. The sun’s energy is then converted into usable energy. This energy is used to power all the electric devices in your home, including your appliances, light bulbs, smartphone, and more.
Any power your solar panels generate that isn’t used in your home is exported through your electrical meter and back onto your local power grid. Your energy company will automatically credit you for this exported electricity. So not only do you save money by generating your own energy, you also make money by selling energy back to the city—while helping protect the environment
How much does solar cost in Calgary?
The cost of installing solar panels is variable and requires an estimate for each property.
The cost will depend on the size, pitch, and condition of your roof and whether any upgrades are needed to your electrical system. In addition to the cost of the solar panels themselves, there are other costs including inverters, electrical equipment, labour, and permits. The cost will also depend on local solar incentives and rebates.
When people ask this question, they’re typically asking not only about the cost of solar panel installation, but also about the return on investment (ROI) of solar—the economics of their purchase.
The amount of energy your solar system generates over its lifetime depends on several factors, including the size and pitch of your roof, your distance from the sun, and how much sunlight your roof gets.
Each client’s home is different, for that reason don’t have one set system cost. However, the average solar panel system that we install in Calgary is roughly $9,000 to $17,000, which includes everything from site assessment to installation and commissioning.

What solar incentives and rebates are available in Calgary?
Unfortunately, the provincial government disbanded Energy Efficiency Alberta, along with the Residential Solar Program in June 2020. However, there are still nearby renewable energy incentives available.
The Banff Solar Production Incentive offers $0.75 per watt on solar energy systems to a limited number of applicants each year.
What type of solar financing is available in Calgary?
Some banks, including RBC, offer Canada-wide solar financing programs.
In Alberta, PACEALberta currently offers the Clean Energy Improvement Program (CEIP)—a pilot renewable energy financing program that pays you back based on an assessment of your property tax bill.
We’ve also partnered with ATB financial in Alberta to offer our customers quick, easy and secure financing. For more information, check out our Solar Financing page.
What’s involved in a free solar assessment?
We only need three things to complete your free solar assessment:
- Your most recent energy bill: This will help us model your recent energy consumption to design an optimal solar system and provide you with accurate pricing.
- A photo of your electric panel: With this, we can tell if a new solar system can be integrated with your home’s current electrical infrastructure, or whether an upgrade is required.
- Your address: With your address, we can use Google imaging in combination with our in-house software to remotely design a custom system—taking into account factors like roof space, potential sunlight and shading structures, and optimal panel tilt.
