Efficiency Nova Scotia is now offering a program for residents of Dartmouth and Cole Harbour. The Residential Direct Install of Efficient Products (RDIEP) program is being administered by Clean Nova Scotia and is free of charge for all homeowners and renters in this area.
This is a fantastic service where residents receive a free installation of free energy efficient products to help save money on their power bill, such as:
• CFL bulbs
• low flow shower heads
• faucet aerators
• insulating wrap for electrically heated hot water tanks and hot water pipes
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff come to the home to install these products. Switching to these products can save up to $160/year on your power bill.
Here are some fun facts for you:
• According to StatsCan, in 2007 a typical household in Nova Scotia consumed an average of 10,833 kWh of electricity yearly;
• From January to October 2012 alone, the RDIEP program has removed 16,059,114 kWh off of the grid through the installation of these efficient products - that is the equivalent of removing 1,482 households!
