Your Battery Options

smart grid nova scotia - battery options


As part of this pilot program, customers could choose between two different home battery storage solutions.  Our battery storage calculator helps understand how long each device provides back-up power during an outage. Our certified installers will assist in making the right choice—depending on a home’s power needs.
