Rebates & Financing
The solar industry is fortunate to have some great rebates incentivising people to invest in renewable energy technology. There are rebates available for either commercial or residential solar projects.
Canada Greener Homes Rebate
The Canada Greener Homes Initiative will help homeowners save money, create new jobs across Canada for energy advisors and fight climate change. Grants for $1 per watt of solar energy up to $5,000 are now available!
Nova Scotia Solarhomes Program
Efficiency Nova Scotia offers incentives to homeowners for solar PV systems to make solar electricity more affordable than ever. The SolarHomes program helps Nova Scotians harness the sun’s energy by offering rebates on approved solar PV systems.
The Clean Technology Investment Tax Credit
The Federal Government has announced a tax credit for businesses investing in solar energy starting in Spring 2023. The Clean Technology ITC would provide a 20–30% refundable credit, based on the capital cost of qualifying equipment.
Canada Greener Homes Loan
The Canada Greener Homes Loan helps Canadians make their homes more energy-efficient and comfortable. It offers interest-free financing up to $40,000, in addition to the Canada Greener Homes Grant to help you complete some of the more major retrofits recommended by your energy advisor.
Halifax Solar City Program
The Solar City program offers property owners in the municipality access to innovative solar energy options, which can be financed through a solar collector account with the Halifax Regional Municipality.
