Capturing the power of the sun to provide space and water heating may seem like a far-reaching task, but with product rebates and expert advice available to help you find the right fit, your business could be solar-powered before you know it. This renewable energy source is surprisingly abundant here in Nova Scotia, allowing businesses like yours to take advantage, while reducing energy costs and environmental impact along the way.
Solar Commercial Space Heating
A custom rebate to help supplement your commercial space heating system with solar technology.
Solar power converts the light of the sun into energy – a renewable energy source that’s available almost anywhere on earth, and surprisingly abundant in Nova Scotia.
A solar air heating system:
- Cuts heating costs
- Requires little maintenance
- Evens air temperature between floor and ceiling level
- Can provide fresh air that improves indoor air quality
Solar Commercial Water Heating
A custom rebate to help supplement your commercial water heating system with solar technology.
A solar hot water system converts sunshine to heat energy and uses it to pre-heat your hot water. The system:
- Cuts hot water energy use (up to 50%)
- Cuts emissions
- Needs little maintenance
- Lasts up to 20 years
That translates into savings on energy, money, and the environment.
A hospital in HRM is now using the power of the sun to heat up their water. With a rebate of $5,500, they were able to install a solar domestic hot water heater which is more energy efficient while also being better for the environment. This piece of equipment helps the hospital save $1,300 a year on energy bills, which they can re-invest in programs for staff and patients.
