There are a couple main problems that continue plague the solar industry.
First, solar is still a relatively mysterious space. People aren’t sure where to buy the products they need or how to use them.
Second, our industry does not have enough qualified staff to properly service retail and industrial customer’s needs.
So, What Are We Doing About It?
We offer full kits online at solarwholesaler.ca to make purchasing easier and we also offer training to our staff and customers in our 12-person training room. We intend to continue to take the mystery out of solar by:
The Solar Wholesaler staff are some of the most experienced off-grid and grid-tie solar professionals in Canada. Solar education is our primary concern for both our staff and our customers.
We train our customers in person in our showroom. Once you leave the showroom, our open source training videos, tech support, diagrams, etc will provide ongoing support and training.
Where most solar distributors only carry the basic components, Solar Wholesaler offers a very comprehensive list of products that allow people to fully complete their solar kits. Our buy-in kits and corresponding support ensure our customers always know how the parts they are buying work together and how to install them in an efficient and simplified way.
All told, we sale about 500 different solar products from our webstore. Kits offer a cheaper and demystified purchasing solution for our clients. Instead of cobbling together the necessary pieces, Solar Wholesaler offers a one-stop solar shop at wholesale prices.

Solar Wholesaler now employs staff that offers over 60 years of combined technical sales experience under one roof both for grid-tie and off-grid applications. Our storefront and training room is the only one of its kind in Canada. Solar Wholesaler strives to continue to take the mystery out of solar for our clients and offer the most comprehensive customer service and training available in Canada.
This vision has led us to doubling our yearly revenue every year we’ve been in business.
We are set to over double again next year.
Our customer base grows daily. Because we service end users as well as repeat customers, we have 1000s of customer email addresses and contact details. Our customers come from all over Canada, and we’re starting to gain traction in the US and global scale as well.
We have also applied to become a Tesla Powerwall distributor and will soon be getting one installed outside our building. This will further establish Solar Wholesaler as a leader in renewable energy solutions.
Up next: We hope to obtain funding which will allow us to double in size year over year for the next 3-4 years and move our PowerCan division to new levels.
