Case Study: True Beauty Salon in Bedford
Upgrade your lighting, heating, and other energy products, and we’ll cover up to 60% of the cost. If approved, pay the difference with interest-free financing – right on your power bill.
In her well-lit salon, master stylist and owner Jessica Fletcher was climbing a ladder every week to change a light bulb. And maintaining a comfortable, inviting salon and spa in winter and summer sometimes meant high power bills.
Efficiency Nova Scotia provided an energy assessment, custom recommendations, and installed Jessica’s selected upgrades – including efficient commercial lighting, and additional heat pumps to add comfort to both her spa and salon.
The service covered about 60% of the cost; Jessica covered the rest with interest-free financing right on her power bill.
Even after adding the financing costs, True Beauty Salon’s power bills have dropped. And with an average lifetime of more than 25,000 hours, she hasn’t replaced a light yet!
According to Jessica:
“To be a business owner in our economy, well in any economy, but especially here in Nova Scotia, is difficult. Every little bit of savings count towards making your business more successful.”
“I was surprised by the diverse options. It went over and above my expectations. It’s nice to know that there is support. There is an organization looking to make things better for small business.”
“I don’t think people realize how simple it is. For the small amount of time it took to set things up, there’s no reason not to do it.”
“It’s already paying off.”
