Solar Heating & Solar Electric Specialists




The professionals at Solar Ontario brought 40+ years of solar product and solar system design experience, along with the practical knowledge from actually having installed, serviced and maintained over 1,000 residential & commercial solar systems in Ontario, to provide consulting services for your specific solar energy inquiry.

We are no longer active in the solar installation or servicing aspects of the solar business and are only consulting on commercial or municipal solar projects and pool water heat reclaimation / controlling equipment that we design & build.

Solar Ontario has designed and installed solar swimming pool heating systems, solar water heating systems and solar electric systems in Southern Ontario. We have regularly served residential customers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) area including; Oakville, Mississauga, Burlington, Hamilton, Dundas, Waterdown, Milton, Georgetown, Brampton, Etobicoke, Vaughn, Toronto and Richmond Hill.

We do provide consulting services on solar systems outside these areas on a case by case basis, and for municipal, commercial & industrial solar systems across the province.

Solar Ontario was established in 2002 and has since designed and installed MicroFIT, off-grid, behind-the-grid PV systems. We have also designed, supplied & installed our highly-efficient indoor pool waste heat recovery systems and over a thousand swimming pool & water solar heating systems.

Ontario Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) Program Update September, 2021

   The MicroFIT program is over. There is nothing in Ontario to replace it. Net metered PV systems can still be installed where permitted - check your local hydro company.

Net-metering, often seen as the alternative to the MicroFIT program, is available, but does not provide as quick a return (typically 12 - 15+ year paybacks). These systems can only reduce an electrical bill - not generate a (taxable) income from selling electricity the way the MicroFIT program does.

There is a great deal of misinformation about solar pool heating, solar water heating and solar electric power systems on the internet. Please review our pages if you are looking for accurate & honest information based on over 40 years of in-the-field design, installation & maintenance experience.
