Go Green and Save Money
Help the environment and eliminate your power bill with a solar power system installed by HRS Solar Solutions
How Does it Work?
Solar panels installed on your roof, or on the ground, generate electricity throughout the year, providing power to your home as you need it. Extra power is sent back into NS Power system. When the solar panels do not meet your needs, NS Power electricity flows back to your home.
A solar ‘net metering’ agreement with Nova Scotia Power (see Note 1 below) will guarantee that you always get paid the current consumer rate for your solar generated electricity. Over the year, you will likely generate enough power to meet your own needs – so no net power bill for you. If you generate more power than you use, NS Power pays you at the current rate! (Neat, eh?)
As the years pass and electricity rates increase, the value of the solar power you send back to NS Power also increases. And you benefit from even greater cost savings on your electrical bill.
Solar Energy Potential on the South Shore
In Nova Scotia, we enjoy an average of 1,090 hours of sunshine each year. Enough sunshine that most home owners can expect a roof mounted solar system will meet their electricity energy needs.
Efficiency Nova Scotia SolarHomes Program
The Province of Nova Scotia is offering significant rebates via Efficiency Nova Scotia SolarHomes Program (see Note 2 below) towards the installation of qualifying solar power systems. With the government rebate, your upfront investment is significantly reduced, and your rate of return much higher.
NOW is a great time to consider a solar power system.
