Solar Colchester

Solar Colchester is a municipal Property Assessed Clean Energy (or “PACE”) program that allows eligible property owners in Colchester to install photovoltaic solar panels with financing assistance from the Municipality. Solar PV panels harvest clean energy from sunlight, which can save you money on your power bill and reduce your carbon footprint. Participants can pay for the project at an attractive interest rate over 10 years.

The program is available to homes with a single, owner-occupied dwelling unit and up to one rental unit, as well as certain non-profit institutions. See Eligibility under the “About the Program” tab for more information.

Residential applicants are eligible for the Efficiency Nova Scotia SolarHomes rebate, which can cover up to $6,000. Once you have applied to the Solar Colchester program, the solar contractor will apply for the rebate on your behalf.
