Why Nova Scotia Should Go Solar

Take advantage—choose from two of the best incentives in Canada! The Greener Homes initiative offers grants of up to $5,000 to help homeowners across Canada make energy efficiency retrofits to their primary residences, including a new solar install! Provincially, Efficiency Nova Scotia offers applicants rebates of $0.30/Watt installed DC capacity—up to a maximum of $3000.* Applications are on a first-come, first-serve basis. With Nova Scotia having gone through numerous rebate reductions in the past few years, it is more important than ever to take advantage of one of these fantastic opportunities. * Provincial and Federal grants are not stackable in Nova Scotia.

Nova Scotia has provided solar rebates since Summer 2018. This is currently the longest lasting rebate in Canada. Nova Scotians have shown their desire to go solar and have become some of the most educated in the market. With consistent interest in Solar, Nova Scotia is poised to set an example for the rest of Canada in 2020 as leaders in the fight against GHG.

Raising Utility Rate Protection: Going solar is the best way to hedge your rising electricity cost.

Do you know Nova Scotia has the highest cost per KWH than any other province in Canada?

15.81 cents per KWH. A guaranteed price increase for the next 2 years has already been approved and will rise at a minimum of 1.5%. More importantly, historical data shows a 3.3% average The average Nova Scotia family is using on average 16,080 kWh per year. That is an approximate spending of $2,542.25 a year before HST.

Nova Scotia is one of the few provinces that will credit excess production at the 100% utility rate value. Therefore 1 KWH export to the grid will be credit at $15.81 cents per KWH along with any future rate increase. For instance, Manitoba only credit at 40% of the rate per kWh or Saskatchewan at 50% of the rate per kWh.

How Does Solar Work in Nova Scotia

Photovoltaic cells absorb the sun’s energy and convert it into a DC electric current.
A solar inverter converts that DC current into an AC electric current for use in the home.
Your electrical panel then sends this electricity throughout your home to power your electronics.
Excess power that is not used by the home will be sent to the grid for credit which can be used for the future. A bi-directional meter will be installed to record these credits.
Paying for electricity is like renting a farm/business. Making payments every
month,adding no equity, and never seeing that money again.

Bills will only increase every year, but you cannot stop it.
Paying for solar is an investment into an appreciating asset on your home.

Solar will limit the effects of increased energy costs.
