Generating A Cleaner Megawatt
For many years, most of Nova Scotia’s electricity has been generated by burning coal. That’s starting to change in a significant way. By generating electricity from cleaner-burning natural gas, as well as wind, hydro and biomass in accordance with the provincial Renewable Electricity Plan and greenhouse gas regulations, Nova Scotia Power is displacing coal fuel generation and producing cleaner electricity for Nova Scotians.
Reliability Advisory Committees
Nova Scotians depend on a reliable electrical system both at
work and at home. It’s a key contributor to a positive quality of life for all Nova Scotians and the provincial economy. Nova Scotia Power is midway through a five-year, $100 million reliability investment plan. This plan is in addition to about $60 million spent each year on improvements such as equipment upgrades and other measures that help strengthen the transmission and distribution system that delivers electricity to customers. But we haven’t seen all the results Nova Scotians expect.
Seeking Volunteers - PowerShift Atlantic
Want to take part in an innovative Maritime-based research
project that will help integrate renewable energy into our
electrical system and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels?
PowerShift Atlantic is a regional partnership exploring ways to
make the best use of variable renewable energy sources like
wind by shifting the electricity flows being delivered to homes
and commercial buildings at times when it isn’t needed.
We’re looking for 750 Nova Scotia Power customers to play a
part in this unique research opportunity and help the adoption
of renewable energy sources. If you own your own residence,
have high speed internet service and use an electric water
heater, you may be qualified to participate.
