Efficiency NS SolarHomes Program Change

Effective January 6th, 2022, the SolarHomes rebate will change to 30¢/watt (installed DC capacity) up to a maximum of $3,000. The previous rebate amount was 60¢/watt up to $6000.

"In order to manage the available funding with increasing demand for solar installs, it has been decided to reduce the rebate amount, this will help ensure that the program is available to as many Nova Scotians as possible while continuing to support sustainable growth in Nova Scotia’s solar industry." says Efficiency Nova Scotia.


Corporate Member Install Delays Survey

In early October, 2021, Solar Nova Scotia conducted a survey of our corporate members to determine current wait times and impact to business for utility plan reviews and meter installs. Twelve corporate members responded to the survey. The results of the survey, presented below, indicate that wait times are currently unusually long, taking up to 3 months for plan review and 2 months for meter installs. In addition, 11 out of 12 installers indicated that plan review delays in particular are having a severely negative impact on their business.
