Thinking of going solar?

Let’s take a look at how solar energy works:

1. Solar Panels
The Sun provides an abundant source of clean, renewable energy that is captured by monocrystalline solar panels.
2. Inverters
Inverters converts the solar energy from DC into usable AC energy to power your household loads.
3. Smart Meter
Measures your electricity usage and excess electricity generation, reducing your electricity bill and earning you Kwh credits.
4. System Monitoring
Our systems are equipped with lifetime system monitoring, granting you access to the real-time status of your energy from your smart-phone, tablet or computer.

Let’s talk about the benefits of solar power:

Seize your energy independence.
A quality solar installation in your home will generate clean energy and savings on your electricity bills for 25+ years.
Earn credits for generating excess electricity.
When you generate more power than you use, Nova Scotia allows you to earn credits through their Net Metering Program.
Earn an Annualized Return
Compared to a conventional GIC earning 2%, investing in your home can generate an annualized return as high as 6 to 10% over a 25 year term.
Sell your home for more.
Adding solar to your home is known to increase your property value by an amount equivalent to the cost of the solar panel system.
Contribute to a cleaner future.
Decrease your carbon footprint and charge your electric vehicle with a sustainable, solar powered home.

“Our experience with Shift was delightful”

Our experience with Shift was delightful. They managed to flawlessly perform a difficult installation on our tall house with a steep roof . And thanks to their mapping software and their ability to push the limits, they were the only ones who could make our high number of panels fit. All of this with constant smiles and friendliness.

What do Clients say about working with Shift?

We called several companies in the area and Shift Energy was the only company that responded with a well thought out plan to match our requirements. Their response was quick, very professional and cost effective. After setting up an installation schedule our 4.2 kw (14 panels) array was installed in a day. The electrical setup was completed over the next week due mostly to us installing a charging port for our Tesla with Shift’s electrician. Again a very professional installation. We really love our solar system. Especially when BC Hydro pays us for giving them power.

– Keith W.

We chose shift because you were prompt and thorough in preparing and a quote and recommending the right system for our house. You came to our site and answered every question we had. We chose to get solar because we just added air conditioning and a hot tub to our power load. The payback was better than we expected and the price the Shift Energy Group system was far cheaper than I expected. During the installation the installers answered more questions , showed me everything and were happy to include my recommendations on where and how to run wires in my house.

– Lee P.

Outstanding job! From initial planning to installation, the job couldn’t have been done better. The proposal was accurate, detailed and great value for money. The installation tram was truly exceptional. They came when promised and did the job quickly and perfectly. One other thing, everyone I dealt with was the nicest people to deal with … truly remarkable crew!

– Peter G.

Great service. Very competitive pricing, but the proof is in the performance. The solar system met its performance target for the first 12 months of operation.
