Enhanced net metering: Nova Scotians can install a source of renewable energy such as a wind turbine or set of solar panels – or even a small hydro or biomass generator - to help power their home or business. If your generating unit produces more energy than you use at any one time, the extra electricity will flow onto the local grid for others to use. On the other hand, if your generator isn’t producing as much as you need, you can still draw from the grid to make up the difference.
Community Solar Garden Pilot: Eligible Nova Scotians can have access to clean energy without needing to install their own solar panels. This program is an accessible way for customers who don’t own their home, who rent, live in a condo or in an area that may not get a lot of direct sunlight, to participate in solar energy.Solar Electricity for Community Buildings program: Eligible community groups and organizations can generate solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity on their roofs or properties and sell it to their utility under a 20-year contract.
