Where is the rebate coming from?
The rebate is funded federally through the Low Carbon Economy Fund and administered by Efficiency Nova Scotia.
Am I eligible?
The Solar City office will work with you to ensure confirm whether the proposed system meets the SolarHomes eligibility criteria.
Can I combine the rebate and Halifax’s Solar City financing?
Yes, you can. In fact, the two programs are very similar in terms of process. By leveraging Solar City financing you don’t have to worry about obtaining the upfront capital if you own your property. The municipality pays the contractor directly and you obtain a rebate to reduce your repayments.
How do I apply?
Visit the Province's website to apply.
How much will I save?
Solar City participants can save up to $10,000 on overall system costs. The rebate will be valued at $1 per installed watt to a maximum of $10,000 or 40 per cent of the overall system cost (excluding HST).
I just installed a system and did not receive the rebate – am I still eligible?
The rebate is not available to participants whose system was connected before Monday, June 25, 2018. For more information regarding rebate eligibility, please contact Efficiency Nova Scotia.
