Commercial solar is one of the fastest growing and scalable renewable energy technologies in the world. At Pure Solar, we can help your business find a viable solar solution that will reduce your operational costs, provide financial freedom from rising energy costs and reinforce your commitment to the environment.
Solar is now more fiscally attractive for industry by providing businesses with income tax incentives in the form of refundable tax credits and an accelerated capital cost allowance. This provides significant returns for industry and accelerates the payback on solar conversion.
Futureproofing your business
At Pure solar, we are committed to helping businesses transition to renewable energy and become industry leaders in sustainability. Incorporating solar into your business, demonstrates to your customers that you are environmentally conscious and value sustainability.
The commercial solar market in British Columbia has grown rapidly thanks to the province’s strong commitment to renewable energy, introduction of government incentives, and the falling cost of solar technology. The new refundable tax credits for businesses accelerates the return on investment and demonstrates Canada’s willingness to be a leader in mitigating the impacts of climate change.
Reduce Unethical sources of energy
One of the key drivers of the commercial solar market in BC is the province’s Clean Energy Act, which requires BC Hydro to source at least 90% of its electricity from clean or renewable sources by 2025. This has created a strong demand for solar and a number of large-scale projects across the province.
Solar energy is good for the environment for several reasons. First and foremost, it is a clean and renewable source of energy. Unlike fossil fuels, which release greenhouse gases and other pollutants into the air when they are burned, solar energy generates electricity with no associated emissions. This means that using solar energy can help reduce the amount of pollution in the air and combat climate change. Additionally, solar energy is a plentiful and widely available resource. The sun is a virtually endless source of energy, and as long as there is sunlight, we can generate electricity from it. This means that solar energy can help reduce our dependence on finite resources like oil and gas. Solar photovoltaic energy is the fastest growing source of electricity in Canada and it is one of the simplest method of generating widespread electricity.
Protect our natural environment
Energy generated from fossil fuels produces harmful toxins in the air. Solar panels produce no harmful emissions. Reducing air pollution and protecting the quality of the air we breathe. Non-renewable energy production releases greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide into the atmosphere. These toxic gases are released into the air and are contributing significantly to climate change. Solar power reduces the need for these energy sources and ultimately protects our planet.
Reduce your carbon footprint
Vancouver is a city known for its beautiful natural surroundings and commitment to sustainability.

Our 5-Step Approach
1. Free Assessment & Consultation
Upon submitting our contact form, a member of our team will reach out to discuss your energy goals, provide a solar assessment and answer questions you may have. If necessary we will arrange for an on-site visit, which enables us to confirm the slope, access, shading and suitability for solar on your roof.
2. Design & Proposal
Based upon the information collected during the initial consultation, energy usage from your BC Hydro account and the site visit, our solar experts will generate a comprehensive proposal that fits your specific energy needs. Aligned with the BC Hydro Net Metering program, we will try to match your annual usage and generation to eliminate your BC hydro bill. You will be provided with a free assessment which demonstrates 3D imagery for a model of your proposed system, outlining the projected generation and utility savings.
3. Contract & Procurement
If you like our proposal we will formerly prepare a statement of work (SOW) to enter into a formal contract. Once a contract has been signed, we will order and deliver all of the required materials for your project from our trusted local suppliers. We use various suppliers to ensure that you are receiving the best solar products on the market.
4. Schedule & Installation
Our installation team will make contact and arrange a date that suits you. Installation generally takes between 1-3 days depending on the size of the system. Our installers will arrive, introduce themselves and then quickly get to work. There is no special access required, so installers can also work if the homeowner is out for the day. We are flexible and respect your space, so we will work around your preferred schedule.
5. Certification & Commission
Once your system is installed we will have our FSR certified electrician connect the system to the mains panel and the BC Hydro grid. Just like that you are now generating clean energy using the power of the sun. Using the monitoring system we set up for you will enable us both to monitor, track and ensure your systems performance. Be assured that ongoing support is available from our team.
