Community Solar Program Background

Nova Scotia is working toward 80% renewable energy by 2030 and becoming net-zero by 2035. These are targets set by the federal and provincial government, and Nova Scotia committed to achieving them together. Last year, the province announced its Clean Power Plan—a roadmap to reach climate goals that Nova Scotia Power are aligned with and supportive of.

Nova Scotia’s Community Solar Program Goals: 

  • Add up to 100 megawatts (MW) of clean, renewable solar generation to the grid, helping to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and mitigate climate change.
  • Extend the benefits of solar generation to those unable to access it.
  • Support local economic development.
