Electric Thermal Storage (ETS)
An ETS is the most comfortable way to heat your home. An ETS system enables time-of-day rates which allow savings of up to 40% on home heating costs, as well as the rest of your energy costs in your home.
Heat pumps are the most efficient and affordable way to heat your home. Not only that, in the summer they can cool and dehumidify your home, too. The latest models are effective on most winter days, and can cost less than half of what it costs to operate an oil-fired furnace or boiler.
Switching to an electric vehicle can save you up to $2,000 a year as they use much less energy to operate. Plus, you can reduce your carbon footprint from driving by as much as 50%. EVs are reliable, easy to maintain, affordable to drive, and the newest models have a range of over 300km.
Electric Vehicle Smart Charging
A level-2 smart charger charges your electric vehicle quickly, easily, and safely. It connects to your home's WiFi, and gives you total control of your EV charging cycles, and insight into your charging patterns and costs.
The newest electric water heaters supply your home with all the hot water you need, for less. And since they don't require combustible fuels - like oil or natural gas water heaters do - they're typically safer too. Upgrade to a heat pump water heater and you get the most efficient hot water system on the market.
With a home battery, you can benefit in two ways. First, you can store energy (from either the grid or solar panels) which you can then use in the event of an outage. Second, if you have time-of-day rates, you can charge them overnight, when rates are lower, and use that power the next day.
Solar panels are a zero-emissions way to convert solar energy to electricity. The power you generate is first used in your home, and any excess is automatically sold to Nova Scotia Power and added to the grid.
A smart meter gives you more convenience, reliability, and control over your energy use. With a smart meter, you can monitor your daily power usage in real time using MyEnergy Insights; set up energy-use and billing notifications; and get a more efficient response in the event of an outage.
Your electrical panel is where the power that comes into your home is split up to power the outlets, lights, and appliances in your home. As you consider home electrification, you need to understand the size of your current service panel and whether or not it's adequate to handle your current and future needs.
Active transportation doesn't get more fun, healthy, and low (or no) emissions than biking. eBikes make it easier for more people to choose cycling because they have an electrical assist motor that makes it easier to go up hills, haul a trailer, and go long distances. Charge it up at night and you're good to go tomorrow.
