Below are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we recieve about Nova Scotia Solar power.

Our origin story traces back to our humble beginnings, where a group of individuals aspired to make a positive impact in the best way possible. During a time when rebates were absent, only a few companies engaged in solar initiatives in Nova Scotia. Since those early days, we have grown significantly, emerging as a prominent solar provider.

Yes, Stanton Solar provides installation services. As a fully integrated solar sales and installation company, we ensure that every installer is carefully selected and trained in the best practices that have generated our golden reputation.

Book a consultation with us to begin your solar power project, and we will be able to support you throughout the entire process from A to Z, ensuring your installation goes as smoothly as possible. Whether you are a residential or commercial customer, we also provide the guidance and resources you need to maximize your solar power investment.

Stanton solar panels are versatile and can work in many locations. 

We recommend a site assessment by our experts to determine the feasibility of solar installation at your location.

The cost of our solar panel installation depends on the size of the system,. For a personalized estimate, it’s recommended to consult with us, as we can assess your specific situation.

Government incentives and rebates are often available to support solar installations. These can include federal programs like the Canada Greener Homes Grant and the Investment Tax Credit for Renewable Energy. Additionally, provinces and territories often have various initiatives. These incentives can significantly offset the cost of installing solar panels. We recommend consulting with our team of experts to explore the specific programs available in your area and maximize your benefits.

We are committed to excellent customer service. Our team is here to provide dedicated support and offer expert technical advice throughout your solar journey. Whether you have questions about the installation process, need assistance with system maintenance, or seek guidance on optimizing your solar setup, our professionals are just a call or email away. We value your experience with us and strive to ensure you have the support you need at every step.

Stanton solar panels harness energy from the sun through photovoltaic (PV) cells. These cells, typically made of semiconductor materials, convert sunlight into electricity. When sunlight strikes the PV cells, it creates an electric field, allowing the movement of electrons and generating direct current (DC) electricity.

Our solar panels are designed to capture sunlight efficiently, even in low-light conditions. The generated DC electricity is then converted into alternating current (AC) by an inverter, making it compatible with your home’s electrical system. This clean and renewable energy can power your household or business, reduce reliance on the grid, and contribute to a more sustainable future. If you have more questions or need detailed information, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Our solar system comprises several essential components working together seamlessly to harness and convert solar energy.

The primary components include solar panels, which capture sunlight and convert it into electricity through photovoltaic cells. An inverter transforms the generated direct current (DC) into usable alternating current (AC) for your home. Racking and mounting structures ensure the secure installation of solar panels on your roof or property.

Additionally, monitoring systems allow you to track your energy production and efficiency. Our comprehensive solar systems are designed for reliability, efficiency, and long-term sustainability, providing a robust and environmentally friendly energy solution.

Determining the optimal location for mounting your Stanton solar panels is crucial for maximizing energy production. In general, panels should be installed on a south-facing roof with minimal shading to capture the maximum sunlight throughout the day. East and west-facing roofs can also be viable but may produce less energy. Our installation experts can also mount panels on the ground or structures like barns, using any open space with good sunlight visibility. The angle of the panels is set to match your location’s latitude for optimal efficiency. Our expert team conducts a thorough site assessment, considering roof orientation, shading, and local weather conditions, ensuring your solar panels are strategically placed for optimal performance and energy efficiency.

Grid-Tie, Off-Grid, and Hybrid solar systems differ in how they manage and utilize electricity. A grid tie system is connected to the local utility grid, allowing excess solar energy to be fed back into the grid, potentially earning credits or compensation. It provides energy independence while remaining connected to the grid for supplemental power when needed. On the other hand, an Off-Grid system operates independently of the grid, relying solely on stored solar energy in batteries.

This option suits remote locations where connecting to the grid is impractical. Hybrid solar systems combine elements of both, incorporating battery storage to store excess energy during periods of low sunlight while still attached to the grid. This versatility ensures a reliable power supply, reducing reliance on the grid while providing backup power when solar generation is insufficient. The choice among these systems depends on factors such as location, energy needs, and individual preferences, and our experts can guide you in selecting the most suitable option for your specific requirements.

We use NREL SAM to model your solar system. It’s regarded as the best in the world. Initially created for the United States government to design power plants, it’s now publicly available for all solar projects.

YES – even though Nova Scotia can sometimes be cloudy, solar power is still a great solution! Solar PV (PhotoVoltaics) will work all winter long. However, December, January, and February produce very little. March is the first month of sound energy output. On an annual basis, the energy you create and bank through March to November carries those winter months. 

Savings from any solar system depends on many factors; each home is unique. Systems are limited by energy consumption, roof space, electrical service size, etc.

A Carbon Tax is imposed on burning carbon-based fuels (coal, oil, gas). In Nova Scotia, we have a cap and trade system. More information can be found in our About Solar section.


Solar production from December through February is next to nothing. March through November are your production months. Winter production is a small fraction of your annual production, and the week or 2 of snow on the panels amounts to a tiny fraction of the already small fraction. It is not worth breaking your neck trying to clear it or spending money to try to remove it.

Just relax and wait for the spring.
