Todd, Jeff and the staff look forward to offering solar solutions to the many customers and business relationships they have developed over their years in business. Westman Solar Solutions’ goal is to provide sound information on solar options to their customers with a no-pressure approach and grow solar-energy awareness to help build another “green” footprint in the Westman area.
Solar is a secure investment. Energy prices are rising but with solar panels and simple math, you can calculate how much electricity will be generated. Most importantly, a fixed energy cost for over 20 years.
Guaranteed performance from manufactures. There are 20-25 year warranties (performance guarantee) with solar panels. The industry standard guarantees 80% performance at 25 years.
…sits in the heart of one of the largest potential photovoltaic areas in Canada. Due to our high yearly rate of sunshine and lack of mountain shade, south-facing, properly installed arrays in Westman have a potential of 1300+ kWh annually.

Very likely. The weight of the solar panels and mounting system adds less than 3 lbs. per square foot. Similar to adding another layer of shingles. We take care of getting a structural permit before your project is started and is included in the price of the installation.
If they are close to needing replacement they should be replaced first.
If the panels are covered with snow their output will be affected. Fortunately, most of our Manitoba solar hours come during spring, summer, and fall. Losing parts of the winter months to snow cover doesn’t have a big impact on your annual production. In fact, over 80% of solar energy in Manitoba is collected in 7-8 months of the year. Panels are usually mounted at an angle that snow will often slide off.
The glass used in solar panels is tempered, so it is very strong (the same as your car windshield).
In most cases, no. If this is important to you then there are ways to make it work. However, it does have additional costs.
Solar panels produce a higher wattage in colder temperatures. However, during winter in Westman there are less sunlight hours.

Westman Solar Solutions was exactly what I needed to get a solar PV system installed on my house. They work timely, reliable, and efficient to get the job done. I highly recommend using them for your solar project.
We added solar panels to our home this past summer and can’t say enough about the professionalism of the installers and electricians. We had some hiccups at the end of the install but were very happy with the personal service Todd Gudz provided as the problems were resolved. We would work with Todd and his company again and recommend them highly. Todd also helped us with the provincial and federal grant applications which we really appreciated!
We are very satisfied customers of Westman Solar Solutions. Todd is an extremely knowledgeable, honest, and committed individual. He patiently answered all our questions and guided us through the entire process. Todd has gone out of his way several times to accommodate all our needs, and we are now enjoying the sun even more!
