Loved my experience with John and the team! Super professional, efficient and always happy to answer my many questions along the way. Highly recommend.
Luke Marshall
We installed solar panels with Solar Ascent just over a year ago. They came highly recommended by our close friends and they did not disappoint. The crew was great, they absolutely did what they said and overdelivered. We exceeded the initial projection for power generated. Prior to hurricane Fiona, they even reached out to help prevent any damage to our system. Thanks Solar Ascent, great experience with all crew members through all stages!
Brent Sanderson
Solar Ascent has provided an excellent service before, during and after the install of our solar array one year ago. I would give 6 stars to the entire team if they were available.
Rob Grandy

Really appreciated the time that John and company spent going through the details (like panel efficiency, questions about hurricanes, best location to install, and of course the paper work to get the rebates). They made the process very easy and we are seeing the savings after a full year of solar collection. These guys are responsive to any questions we have had and they are a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend Solar Ascent to anyone thinking of adding solar to their home.

John and his crew are a very professional gang of cool dudes that give you a very clear and detailed study of the project. They execute the project on time without any hazard for you. They are local kids that are a great contribution to Nova Scotia. We need more of them. Yea
John Ross
Solar Ascent provided the total package: informed consultation, reasonable price, fantastic team, professional and highly efficient. I challenged him with adding new panels to an already existing installation with hardware and software that he does not usually work with. John Jennex was persistent and ultimately successful in the problem solving. He is also a great communicator and kept me up to date. Overall six out of five stars. Highly recommend.

Case Studies

Let our work speak for itself

Valley Home

When we first met with the husband and wife who recently moved to this home outside Truro, NS, we knew they found their “forever home”. This freshly built, fully electric home was going to cost a lot of money to provide grid power in the years and decades to come for their growing family.
