Demystifying Solar Electricity for Nova Scotia Homeowners

Discover Solar Poster for New Glasgow Stellarton Antigonish 2

In partnership with communities throughout the province, Solar Nova Scotia will be offering public information sessions on solar electricity (PV). These presentations are designed to de-mystify the technology, economics, and regulations that apply to homeowners interested in producing their own sustainable energy. PV is one of the lowest emission sources of electricity available!

Solar Nova Scotia is a not for profit society formed in 1980; we are dedicated to improving sustainability by developing and sharing good information on solar energy.
Sessions involve approximately a one-hour slide presentation, ideally delivered over a two-hour time frame to allow for discussion, question and answer time, and a workshop exercise on site assessment.

Our partners are contributing presentation space and publicity support. Community groups or individuals interested in hosting or helping to publicize an event are invited to get in touch. or or
