How to go Off-Grid

An off-grid system follows the same process as a grid-tie system.  There is no paperwork in stages 3, 4 and 7, but additional design and engineering work for the battery system, and hybrid connections to wind turbines and/or back-up generators.  

Speaking of paperwork...

Here are some samples of the applications you will face during the process of going solar in Ontario, Canada.  All provincial governments have different requirements for going solar.  We have extensive knowledge of these forms, how to ensure they are filled out properly, and when and whom to submit them to.  Our professionals leave no page unfinished during the project management stages to ensure your solar project is completed to spec in a cost-effective, timely manner.

We're here to help!

Sentinel offers a full suite of solar design and layout services to compliment our project management expertise.  We also offer complete structural and electrical engineering services to make sure your project is 100% ready to go.
