The time to switch is now
Thanks to the new rebates and incentive programs in Nova Scotia, there has never been a better time to switch to solar energy. Efficiency Nova Scotia’s SolarHomes rebate program and HRM’s Solar City financing program, among others, have made solar more affordable and accessible than ever before, and thanks to these programs, Nova Scotia has become a leader in solar energy adoption. However, due to limited funding, these programs won’t be around forever so if you’re thinking of making the switch, now is the time!

For local, by local
Unlike many companies, which are based out of province, all of our solar contractors are proudly Atlantic Canadian. We see the solar industry as much more than a green energy solution, it’s also an opportunity to support our local community and grow our local economy. We pride ourselves on working with the top performing contractors, all of which are qualified under the SolarHomes program. We also work with installers who handle the projects from start to finish – no subcontracting from electrical to roofing. One company. One warranty.
