Solar savings for your home
While conventional home and water heating equipment can be costly and contribute to carbon emissions, solar technology comes in many forms and provides energy efficient solutions for heat and power. Take advantage of an abundant renewable resource to heat your home and the water you use every day. Solar home and water heating equipment use sunshine to heat your home and water while photovoltaic panels convert sunshine into electricity to power your home.
Solar equipment requires little maintenance, and rebates for eligible homeowners are available year-round. Solar equipment is certainly a bright idea for homes of any type.
Solar PV powered homes can help you reduce your energy bills by $1,500 per year on average.
Solar air heaters capture heat from sunlight, a renewable energy source that’s surprisingly abundant in Nova Scotia, and uses it to heat your home.
Solar water heating systems use sunshine to pre-heat your hot water, saving you up to 50% on your bills. And you’ll be eligible for the heating system rebate program.
