About Us

A Rich History of Delivering Quality

iSolara Solar Power was started in 2003 by Warren Abar, P.Eng with a desire to impact climate change while making people energy independent. Using his skill as an engineer, Warren’s research showed that wide scale adoption of Solar Energy was the best antidote to climate change.

iSolara Solar Power started by doing off-grid systems, expanded into solar thermal and then became a grid-tied solar company in 2009 with the introduction of the FIT and microFIT programs.

Today we are focused on large scale agricultural, commercial and institutional net metering, residential net metering, battery energy storage systems (ie. Tesla Powerwall), Tesla Car Chargers, and whole-house micro/off-grid.

Today we have more than 700 happy customers including more than 200 farmers, 450 home owners and over 60 large scale institutional and commercial installations.

Through our skill, dedication and commitment to quality we have continued to be one of the top ten solar installers in Canada and with our 16 year track record we are one of the most reliable, most experienced. Currently we serve Ontario, BC and the Far North.
