Nova Sun Power doesn't just install renewable energy and solar systems; we actually reduce the long-term costs of energy to our clients and their families. Power rates continue to increase, our world is in the midst of a climate crisis and the economy rolls like the North Atlantic. Nova Sun Power provides savings, climate action and energy security.
Photovoltaic (PV) is used to convert the sun’s energy directly into electricity. In recent years the cost of PV has decreased dramatically. So much so, it is now competitive with non-renewable energy sources like oil and coal.
Solar Energy systems appear to be costly, but they are designed to last a long time. Usually they will last long enough so that they pay for themselves - twice. There are few long term maintenance costs to consider. Some systems could last 20 years without any need of repair. Annual inspections are a good idea and can be performed by the owner.
A properly installed and maintained Solar Energy system can benefit both buyers and sellers of homes. The buyer can offer a home that has a lower cost for heating and or electricity, thus getting a better price and attracting "Green" buyers. The buyer is getting a house with low energy costs without the fuss of installing the equipment.
Solar Energy systems are effective at saving money on energy costs. There's no doubt that Solar energy systems work well in the summer; it is just logical. But, even when the days are short and cold the sun has plenty of energy to make hot water or air. Surprise, Solar PV works best in the cold!
Heat pumps are a great complement to Solar power systems. They heat and cool efficiently, and since they use electricity, you can offset their operating cost with a Solar power system that is Grid tied. In floor heating systems can work well with larger Solar HW systems. Solar systems can do most of the work, supplemented by electricity, oil or wood.
“Solar power has provided us with an efficient and dependable power source while living off the grid on Pictou Island. Accolades go to Mr. Robert MacKean at Nova Sun Power for technical advice and professional installation of the solar powered system in our home. We are planning to add to our system in the near future and Nova Sun Power is the place to do business! We take pleasure in recommending Bob for your future solar power requirements.”
