  4. You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on a Professional Energy Audit for your home.It is more convenient to make your own solar panel which can be done under $200 Catch the method here.ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM

  5. This report showing solar panels being installed in a subdivision in Oshawa, ON. It features Mike Holmes and a cameo appearance from David Suzuki. Although the workers in the background are wearing hard hats as required by law, the well-known TV personalities are not. Why is that?

  6. Hi! Thanks a lot for this helpful video. By the way, I notice a lot of people keep on talking about Xobotano Home Energy (just google it), but I’m not sure if it is good. Have you considered this alternative home energy known as Xobotano Home Energy? I have heard many incredible things about it.

  7. When David Suzuki said that all countries have access to the sun, my first thought was: “Poor England…”

  8. Solar Panels are too overpriced at the moment. A 5KW setup with Rolls Battery system will set you back $22000+ just for parts. Not worth it considering the batteries need to be replaced every 10 – 15 years (around 6 grand). Good concept but not for most people’s budget.

  15. Hello. if you have an 80 cent contract already for your property, this is good for 20 years. All new contracts as of October 1 2011 are at the lower rate of 55 cents. The 80 cent contracts that are already in place do not drop.

  16. I wanted 30,000 worth of solar tiles for my roof .The government, was to pay 80 cents a kilo/hr.for hydro I created and sold to them. You don’t use any of the hydro that you make, You sell it and buy yours back at a LOWER market price. Well,the 80. cents had dropped to 55.cents. You still have a monthly payment on the original 30,000 loan to pay.Cake walk at 80.cents, but not at 55 The idea is you were supposed to NOT have to pay for hydro, you make money from it. True or false? please repond

  17. I will be sending Pure energies some pictures of the different roofs on the farm…..house , barn, sheds. I do not want to pay Hydro anymore….I want off of the hydro tit! Lets see where this leads.

  18. never get free panels. the installation company makes more than you would if youd had the job done yourself. Invest the money yourself and enjoy more profit quicker and for longer

  20. Mike Holmes didn’t put standoffs on his ladder. Probably dented the gutter.

  23. David Suzuki FTW!

  24. Actually Colin, thanks for your comments. PURE energies does not ‘prey on suckers’ all over Ontario. We give the opportunity to all of our customers to either own the system themselves or if they prefer to not upfront their money, PURE energies can own the system. We have absolutely no preference as to who owns the system. Next time, do your homework before you put libelous statements on the Internet.

    By Chris Stern on May 25, 2013

  25. Never use Pure Energies unless you like giving away 95% of the profit that your system earns. These guys prey on suckers all over Ontario. Pay for the system yourself and make great profit over the 20 year contract. I just finished a clients house where they will make about $85,000 pure profit after earning the initial investment back,over the 20 year contract. With Pure Energies they would make about $18,000 over the 20 years. That’s $67,000 thaey would have lost to Pure Energies.
