- What's this I hear about a government rebate on solar?
The provincial government has announced a $1/watt (approximately 30%) rebate up to $10,000 on new PV installations in Nova Scotia. This very exciting program will be administered by Efficiency NS, and installations completed after June 25, 2018 will qualify as long as the project meets eligibility requirements. More details are available at www.efficiencyns.ca.
- Are you installing in my area?
Yes! We are currently booking installations for the rest of the 2018 season across Nova Scotia. Fill out the online form in the Register tab with some information about your property and we'll get back to you.
A typical installation takes about 2 days, with some time in between for inspections.
- How much does it cost?
We have 5 different system packages available, so it depends on which size you choose. We offer 10 year financing at a great interest rate on our turnkey packages, with no payments until May 2019. Register to help us determine the appropriate size and we can go from there!
- What happens if I sell my house?
If you sell your home within the financing period, you have a couple of options: Remove the solar panel system and install it on your new home, or buy out the remaining portion of the lease and sell the system with the house. The solar PV system and the electricity cost savings the new homeowner will enjoy should substantially increase the value of your home, and help it sell sooner.
- Will my property taxes increase?
At this time there is no value added to the property assessment for solar PV systems.
