Cheap solar panels/batteries suppliers in Canada (for DIY)

I know there is already a discussion about the solar, but I thought we can create a separate thread for those want to go the DIY route.

The rebate terms state that the panels must be purchased from Canada, so if anyone has any suggestions and quotes they have received, please post them here.

The rebate also provided $1000 for batteries, so you could post prices for this too.

I am considering DIYing it, but only if cost is minimal

Thanks for sharing

I'm confused by the wording in the program or maybe someone can clarify but it states in addition to having source Canadian distributed(not made) panels that it has to be installed by a licensed professional and has to provide a receipt. The only exception was thermostat.

The kits are an interesting point of comparison. Taking the base Trina 410 panels, the price increase between different inverters is quite high.
SMA inverter: $5800
Solaredge HD: $7600
Enphase: $7700
Generac: $9300
Sol-Ark: $12,850
