Join the Solar Movement

Solar Ascent designs and installs solar energy systems for homeowners and business owners in Nova Scotia.

We make solar simple.

The smart and sustainable choice.


Solar technologies have dramatically improved in recent years and worldwide adoption is making them more affordable than ever. Add that to the federal and provincial rebate programs available, there has never been a better time for Nova Scotians to go solar.

No more worrying about rising power rates.

Power rates continue to climb but the payments on your solar energy system financing stay the same every month.

Get the real numbers on how solar can save you money and protect you from rising rates.

It’s Nova Scotia’s time to shine.

Nova Scotians take pride in preserving the incredible beauty of our province. We’ve been early adopters in composting and recycling programs, and the province’s response to the SolarHomes rebate proves that we’re ready to show the world our commitment to being leaders in renewable energy.

How it all started…

Founder and President John Jennex discovered his love for solar in the most organic way possible: by converting his Sprinter work van into a solar-powered camper for a three- month trip across North America. After hours of self-directed research and trial & error, John and his Solar-powered camper ended up at Solar Energy International in Paonia, Colorado – North America’s leading institution for learning about renewable energy systems.
