Sign up for the Switch and Save Program.
You can make a difference in Nova Scotia.
Part of transitioning to a greener future involves shifting to more modern and innovative technology, like water heater controllers.
When you sign up for the Shift and Save program, an Efficiency Nova Scotia partner will come to your home and attach a small device to your water heater. This device makes minor changes to your water heater’s schedule to shift your energy use and help ease the strain on the electrical grid—and all at no cost to you!
Most importantly, these changes won’t impact your hot water availability and should never lead to cold water.

How does this help Nova Scotia?
When Nova Scotians use large amounts of electricity at the same time (like showering in the morning, or cooking in the evening), it can strain the electrical grid and result in costly surges. This is known as peak demand.
One innovative solution to this problem is demand response, which reduces your electricity usage during times of peak demand. That’s where water heater controllers come in. A water heater controller monitors energy usage and makes minor adjustments to when your water heater operates, easing strain on the electrical grid without affecting hot water availability in your home.
By participating in the program, you’re helping create a greener tomorrow for Nova Scotia.
