Solar Energy: How Does it Work?

Nov 7, 2018

We get it- solar energy sounds great in theory, but it can also feel a little complicated and overwhelming. Is it legit? Is it actually cost-effective? Is it too complicated to even bother with?  

These are all questions we hear when we first talk to our customers, and we understand that it can seem confusing at first glance. However, solar energy is actually an incredibly straight forward system, and we’ve made it our mission to make solar simple for Nova Scotians.  

If you’ve been interested in solar but avoiding it because it seems too difficult, this post is for you. We’ll give you an overview of how it works and how you can get started today.  

What is solar energy? 

Solar energy is simply energy from the sun that is converted into energy that we can use. By installing solar panels (usually onto the roof, but not always), we can harness this energy and use it in our homes and buildings.  

Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant energy source available. We are thrilled that, thanks to Nova Scotia’s new incentive and rebate programs, this powerful natural energy source is an affordable and financially beneficial option in our province.   

How Does Solar Energy Work?

Our goal is to make solar simple for Nova Scotians, and when you work with us, there are just four easy steps that stand between you and a more sustainable and cost-effective energy plan for your home.  

 1. A simple assessment. Send us an email with your latest power bill (or the last 6 bills if you’re on Time of Day billing), and we’ll put together your free assessment.  

2. A meeting. After we’ve done your assessment, we’ll meet with you to go over any and all questions and concerns you have about solar. 

3. Financing options. We are lucky to have some great rebate and financing options right now in NS. We’ll go over them with you to make sure you’re taking advantage of these incentive programs. 

4. Leave the rest to us. Once your financing is approved, we’ll get to work on your solar system, which means ordering panels, creating a customized lay out so you get access to the most solar energy possible, and installation of your panels. Meanwhile, you can kick back and look forward to your new energy and cost-effective system.
