In the last few years, solar energy has enjoyed significant growth throughout Atlantic Canada and is only expected to grow in popularity and adoption. It’s an exciting time to be a part of the solar movement, and at Catalyst Sales, we are making it easier than ever for electrical distributors and contractors to take part and benefit from it.
In addition to offering a full range of solar services, including custom proposals and designs, system quotations, site assessments, and more, we have also aligned with the top manufacturers for product and software in the solar industry.
The future is solar
There has never been a better time to enter the solar business, and there’s no end in sight for this thriving industry. A recent report put out by the Canadian Solar Industries Associate estimates that by 2030, Nova Scotia alone will support 1170 solar jobs. We’re fast approaching, if not at, the point where you either get in or get left behind.
What’s driving the solar energy boom? A number of factors, some of which we’ll dive into deeper in upcoming posts. But for now, we’ll highlight some of the main contributors.
- Efficiency Nova Scotia’s SolarHomes program, which offers a system rebate of $0.85 per watt.
- Halifax residents can also take advantage of HRM’s Solar City program, which offers financing on 100% of the system and install costs.
- The move towards electrification, which is seeing everything in our homes going electric, which will require a microgrid to support it.
- Our federal commitment to the environment. Canada has committed to a 30% reduction in our GHG emissions below our 2005 levels by 2030, and solar energy is a major factor in making this happen.
