Community groups in northern Nova Scotia are adding more clean, renewable solar energy to our electricity grid with support from the province. Five organizations in the region have been approved for the solar Electricity for Community Buildings Program through the Department of Energy and Mines.

“This is a pivotal time in Nova Scotia’s push toward our cleaner energy future, and this program offers local groups the chance to participate in, and benefit from, our potential,” said Ms. Casey. “Together we are reducing emissions and building on Nova Scotia’s successes as a leader in fighting climate change.”

We have been hearing a lot about climate change and Nova Scotia’s cleaner energy activities go back more than a decade. Nova Scotians have been clear. Addressing climate change is a priority. Today, we are leaders in addressing climate change by reducing emissions. Over the last decade, no province has reduced its emissions as much as Nova Scotia.

 We have already reduced our total emissions by more than 30 per cent from 2005 levels. The province is on track to meet the legislated target of having 40 per cent of our electricity generated by renewable sources by 2020. Nova Scotia is outpacing Germany in the speed of our transition away from coal. We have installed more wind per capita, than any province – with the exception of our neighbour, PEI.

Nova Scotia ratepayers have invested significantly to bring hydro electricity from Newfoundland…across the Cabot Strait…to Cape Breton. We continue to reduce energy use each year through energy efficiency programs.

Nova Scotians have made a significant investment, and they should be proud of the results they have achieved. Today, we build on those successes through the Solar Electricity for Community buildings Program. This year, more Nova Scotians than ever before are adopting clean, renewable solar electricity. Through the community program, local organizations have the opportunity to participate in our cleaner energy future.

The approved projects are:

  • Colchester County, Rath Eastlink Community Centre, 75 kilowatts
  • Colchester County, Don Henderson Memorial Sportsplex, 75 kilowatts
  • Cumberland County, Dr. Carson & Marion Murray Community Centre, 75 kilowatts
  • Cumberland County, Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy, 25 kilowatts
  • Town of Amherst, Amherst Stadium, 75 kilowatts
  • Pictou County, Plymouth Community and Recreation Association, 21 kilowatts

All applications were overseen by Clean Foundation, the independent procurement administrator.
