With the return of BC PST, key exemptions have been re-instated as of April 1, 2013. Solar panels are a key item that are now exempt from PST. In addition, components (wiring, Solar Controllers, inverters, etc.) sold along with solar panels (e.g.Solar Kits) may also be considered exempt if they are sold as apart of a system. Note - Batteries are not PST exempt.
