Understanding the value of power

The price of power won't stay the same. Factoring an increase in the cost of power is the only accurate way to predict your ROI. For this graph 3.6% per year was used which is historically accurate and also the rate used by Halifax's Solar City program.

Net Metering means no batteries!

Net Metering allows you to be net zero without batteries. Store your energy in the grid – draw it when you need it and get a credit for it if you produce a surplus.

      With a 140 year old house, we were delighted when Wattsup Solar advised us that we could preserve the historic character by installing the system on our garage as an alternative. They were knowledgeable, courteous and above all, truthful. The folks doing the installs and tradework are solid, confident and efficient. They handled everything with the Solar City Program. All we needed to do, was decide to go Solar. They took it from there. Great competitive pricing too. All round great experience.

      After a in depth phone conversation we determined that the solar system was not the correct avenue for our home. We spent time talking about my house, looking at my roof using google maps and discussing the size and orientation and natural shading. Then I was given a pretty good idea of the potential cost and the return on my investment. When it was clear that it was not an ideal option, I received a suggestion for immediate savings. I will look at other alternatives but recommend anyone thinking about this option to WattsupSolar.

      We had a Great experience, Michael and his team answered all our questions and we had a lot. There website is very informative and helped us with our decision as we investigated a variety of contractors. The install was very professional and friendly. A pleasure to work with and made us confident about our decision to go with them for the installation. Its a real pleasure to watch the power being generated by the solar panels online.

      I had an excellent experience dealing with Wattsup solar. They were very knowledge both on the information before quote, and on the installation process itself. Wattsup Solar are also very familiar with the Halifax Solar City program and will guide you through it with ease. not only was their pricing very competitive, but they will happy explain the entire process to you before any kind of commitment (i know we emailed back and forth for months before i pulled the pin). When their crew came to site to install, they knocked on the door to let me know they were there, and came to tell me when they were done and what the next step would be. When they left my house they ensured everything was cleaned up and i was satisfied. Overall they were brilliant, i give them 7 stars out of 5!

      Excellent experience! Mike, Sharron, Tom of the Watts Up team installed 20 panels for us and now the meter is chugging along in the astern direction - a nice change. We had a big challenge with the configuration of our system due to the height of the structure. Mike came well prepared for the challenge. Fantastic effort and fantastic results. Mike was prompt to answer any questions and guide me throughout the entire process. Only downside was then time of year when we installed - fall approaching the winter solstice. Thanks Wattsup Solar for the excellent experience.

      Watts up solar did a really great job analyzing our power bill and matching it to a solar system that is wiping out our monthly power bill. They obtained all the legal approvals and had the system quickly installed. We're really happy with their work.

      Mike and his crew installed 20 x 285W panels with 20 x 250W micro inverters on my Garage in August of this year (2016). Mike and his crew were great to work with, showed up when they were scheduled to and did the work in a neat and timely fashion. I am asked about my system regularly, and I am always quick to recommend Watts Up. Nova Scotia Power put in my new "Net Metering" digital meter effective September 1 and as of October 18 I have just received my first power bill. The Bad news was that NS Power charges for the digital meter change to the tune of $264.21 (taxes in), and that was on my bill 🙁 The good news was that instead of a charge of $165 for power I received a credit of 157kWh ($23.24 Credit). I realize that my Solar power production will likely go way down over the winter, but I am still looking forward to the reduction in my bills. It isn't often that you get to save both the planet and some money... Also I just found out that NS power will be increasing their rates by 3% in each of the next 3 years.. so already my investment is showing a better return than first planned.

      Great bunch of installers. Installed 21 panels in one day even if the weather wasn't nice . Can't explain how I feel when I see my power move in reverse. Had a couple issues but Michael (owner) took care of them ASAP. Now to get the sun gods to start lowering my power bill and make me some money A++ to work and deal with.

      I did a fair amount of research before committing to a solar power company. I asked a lot of questions and the company that responded the most quickly, with reasonable answers, no matter how many times I asked the same question or needed further explanation was WattsupSolar. The installation went just as well. They did all the paperwork for me to enter into an agreement with NSP. They showed up when they said they were going to and did the work efficiently. But the best part is getting the power bill after installing the panels. The first one didn't tell me the true picture because it was partly from a period without panels and partly with, plus it had a charge for the bidirectional meter. The second one I just received covered the period February 15 to April 15 and was a grand total of $24.00. I anticipate by the end of the first year of operation I will cover 100% of my power consumption. I would, and have, recommended this company to anyone who wants to join the solar powered community. In my opinion you can't go wrong with WattupSolar.
