ETS Rebates for Homes Replacing Electric Resistant Heat 

Efficiency Nova Scotia is NOW offering special limited time incentives for homes replacing electric resistant heat in the Kentville area serviced by what’s known as the Klondike substation. The pilot program, known as the Klondike Pilot, is to help reduce peak demand on the Klondike substation and help consumer save energy and money. Energy efficient products, like Steffes Electric Thermal Storage, are taking part of this offer to help consumers remove more of the financial barriers and save money upfront and over time.

Efficiency Nova Scotia is offering rebates up to $4,100 to homeowners in this area who add a Steffes Electric Thermal Storage system to their home. Learn how to take advantage of the Klondike Pilot below or visit Efficiency Nova Scotia’s Klondike Pilot website.

Note: If you have already installed a qualified heating system on or after December 23, 2019, you could be still eligible to receive a rebate. Follow Option 2: Green Heat Application below.
