Grasshopper Solar Corporation’s (GSC) core business has been to provide high quality turnkey Solar Power System solutions in Ontario that are affordable and eligible under the Ontario Power Authority’s (OPA) Feed-in Tariff (FIT). GSC offers a wide range of Solar Power System (SPS) solutions to the Ontario market place, tailored to meet the criteria set out by the OPA. These solutions include smaller systems, less than or equal to 10kW, which are eligible under the microFIT program. GSC also provides SPS solutions for larger systems, over 10kW, which are eligible under the FIT program. These systems range from flush rooftop mounted systems to active dual axis tracker systems. As another service, GSC offers rooftop or land leasing programs for those looking to generate a revenue stream with no initial expenditure. GSC also provides secondary and tertiary services to support clients with technical support, maintenance programs and system dismounts when the roofing system needs to be replaced. GSC understands that buildings are a system and attempts to provide creative solutions in anticipation of clients concerns when considering the installation of a Solar Power System.
Grasshopper Solar is an official corporate member of CanSIA The Canadian Solar Industries Association which represents the interests of its members by working to increase the use of solar energy in Canada. In addition, recognizing that the development of solar energy technologies carries obligations to the purchasers and users of these technologies, it is an objective of the Association, through it programs and activities, to ensure that the solar industry in Canada provides systems and services that meet Canadians expectations of value, performance, and safety.

Feasibility - Free preliminary study
GSC conducts an assessment of cleints properties to determine the viability of the site, as well as potential locations and system sizes;
and will take note of any structures, trees or other issues that may impact the design or performance of the system.
Comprehensive - Feasibility study
GSC's solar experts conduct a full on-site assessment to determine how solar power would work with the property.
Grasshopper Solar analyze's the impact of the skyline on various locations, keeping future developments and seasonal changes into account.
GSC also considers the structural components of the system, such as roof capacity and wiring, providing a comprehensive report and offer a quote for the development of the solar project.
As part of the feasibility study, GSC performs a detailed financial analysis to project the system’s economics. Grasshopper Solar compares several potential locations,
system sizes and system configurations to maximize performance, and provide clients with the costs, panel productivity and estimated returns on investment (ROI).
Design & Engineering
GSC specifies the system’s components, including the quantity, make and structure of the system. GSC ensures that it is in compliance with government and FIT regulations,
OPA’s domestic content requirements, Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) and all building codes.
Installation & Commissioning
How well is the cleint system is installed can greatly affect its performance. That’s why GSC carefully select thier installation team to ensure the cleints system is assembled and connected properly.
At this point, we connect your system to the grid and inspect its performance. Safety is our largest concern, and we make sure that the system is approved by the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) and proper authorities.
Post-installation, our team is available to you to inspect the panels and other components, test the system’s output, and service your system over the course of its warranty.
So that you get the technical support you need, our dedicated customer service team is available normal work hours, as well as evenings and weekends.
We can maintain a record of your system’s energy production to analyze your electrical contribution, CO2 reduction and financial savings. Our monitoring software keeps a record of performance trends so we can see how to continually optimize your energy output.
We pride ourselves on finding you the highest return on investment for your solar power system. With this goal in mind, we provide meticulous system design, source high-performance equipment at market-leading prices (see our GS SeriesTM), and work to ensure the high profitability of your system
