About SolarDataNS

Why we created this site

We want to empower Nova Scotians with realtime information about solar energy. This website is part of the Community Solar Database initiative spearheaded by Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC), which collects data on solar electricity generation from solar arrays across Nova Scotia, and makes this data available for research and public education.

Who we are

NSCC Applied Energy Research develops and tests sustainable energy alternatives. We have extensive experience in solar energy technologies, monitoring devices, microgrids and data analysis, and we’re excited to share our research to help drive future innovation.
