Solar electricity has been in use for over fifty years, and it is still considered a leading edge technology. It has long been the dream of scientists, homeowners and businesses alike to be able to easily access the clean, and abundant electricity from the sun.  PermaCity is proud to be a leader of the continued advances in solar power .

Solar electricity works by harvesting the sun’s photons with solar panels covered in photovoltaic cells, then and turning the electrons into emission free energy.

 The installation solar electricity is quickly becoming the best and most popular alternative energy solution on the market. Not only does switching to solar electricity help the environment, but it also stabilizes your electricity bill. Our clients love that they pay the local utility company little, or nothing.

Solar electricity is quickly becoming the most popular alternative energy solutions on the market. From industrial buildings to homes, people are realizing that solar electricity is smart electricity.  PermaCity can make your evolution to renewable energy easy and painless. With an investment grade installation from PermaCity Solar, you will wonder why you or your friends ever lived without it.

Doubt it if you wish, but many scientists believe we are at the beginning of environmental disaster.  We may avert that disaster with the immediate adoption of Zero Energy Buildings (ZEBs.)  They not only save energy, but they lighten the burden of all of the working appliances and machines inside, using only the amount of energy produced on the roof and wasting nothing. A Zero Energy Building will utilize several renewable energy technologies such as passive and active solar thermal and solar electric, heat pumps, many green building products such as high R-Value insulation, high-efficiency windows, LED lighting, grey water, and rain water harvesting to work as one power-saving holistic building or home.  Our founder Jonathan Port even uses his swimming pool to heat and cool him home with solar electric powering a heat pump.
PermaCity is looking for a few groundbreaking projects to help bring true ZEB buildings to market.  Please contact to share your interest and to make an appointment with our founder Jonathan Port, who is dedicated to see these integrated buildings succeed.

To date more than 1.5 million American homes and businesses have invested in solar water heating systems.
