Solar energy programs

Our solar programs help community groups and individuals reduce energy bills and move toward cleaner energy sources.

For community groups

The Solar Electricity for Community Buildings Program is a three-year pilot program that helps community groups generate solar power and sell it to their utility.

Solar Electricity for Community Buildings

For individuals

The SolarHomes Program will provide a rebate to Nova Scotian homeowners who install eligible solar projects. The rebate will make solar more affordable and save Nova Scotians money on their electricity bills. Applications will be available in August. However, connections on or after June 25, 2018 will be eligible.
