Energy nerds? Yes.

Solar PV can be used in a grid-tied application to produce your own clean green electricity, with or without a battery bank backup.

SAGE Energy has the expert technical knowledge to ensure that your project is designed and installed properly – the first time.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are available in several sizes and manufacturers. We customize each project to our client’s needs, based on a variety of factors such as equipment availability, suitability for the climate, and specific needs of the site. All of the equipment that we sell and install is approved for use in Canada.

We have the expert technical knowledge to ensure that your project is designed and installed properly.

There is a lot more to solar than just bolting panels to your roof.

What is grid-tied solar?

Typical Grid-tied Equipment

  • Solar PV modules

  • Racking

  • Inverter(s)

  • Required Electrical Safety (i.e. fuses, breakers, disconnects)

  • Energy Monitoring (optional)

Grid-tied, on-grid, utility-interactive, grid intertie and grid backfeeding are all terms used to describe the same concept – a solar system that is connected to the utility power grid. A wind energy system can also be grid-tied.

Grid-tied solar installations in NS are subject to Nova Scotia Power’s Enhanced Net Metering program. Some other Maritime provinces offer similar programs. Note that any enhanced net metering applications on or after December 18, 2015 are subject to a 100 kW limit.
