Small Business

Energy efficiency means more than just savings on bills—your small business will gain a competitive advantage, with additional benefits such as:

    • A more comfortable space for employees and customers, with better control of temperature and lighting
    • Savings on your bottom line
    • Equipment that is more reliable, has a longer life and needs fewer repairs
    • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
    • An improved reputation as a business concerned about the environment


Limited time incentives

For a limited time, incentives have increased to cover up to 80% of the total project cost on all Commercial Heating measures. This offer is for small businesses that consume less than 350,000 kWh annually.


Free Energy Assessment

Qualified businesses may receive a free energy assessment, rebates of up to 80% on upgrade projects, and 24-months interest free financing*. Your small business will notice big benefits while enjoying the good things efficiency brings.

Rebates for Non-Electrically Heated Businesses

Even if your business is non-electrically heated, you can access rebates up to 80% on energy efficient products, including heating and lighting, through the Small Business Energy Solutions Program.

* Conditions apply. See Terms & Conditions for details. Products previously purchased that have already received an Efficiency Nova Scotia in-store rebate are not eligible for additional rebates.
