Cleaner. Greener. Together.
Our customers want a cleaner, greener future for our province—and that's why we've made transitioning to renewable energy a priority.
It's a journey we've been on for over 15 years. In the last decade alone, we've tripled our renewable energy from 9% to 30%. Now, we're proud to be on track to generating approximately 60% of our electricity from renewable sources by 2022. It means that when you plug in your appliances, heat your home using electricity, or switch to an electric vehicle, you’re plugging into a grid that's getting greener over time.
Delivering clean, reliable, and affordable energy to Nova Scotians is our mission and commitment.
Clean Energy Facts
- Nova Scotia has one of the highest integrations of wind energy in North America. Approximately 18% of our electricity is generated by wind.
- Since 2005, we’ve cut carbon by 34%—well ahead of our national goal of a 30% reduction by 2030.
- Modernizing our grid is a critical part of our clean energy transition. Through the Smart Grid Nova Scotia pilot, we're testing innovative technologies like battery storage. Batteries can store intermittent clean energy like wind and solar, allowing us to bring more renewables to the grid—even on days the wind isn't blowing or the sun isn't shinning.
Investing in our future
Imagine a future where a battery in your home stores and provides energy, and keeps your home powered when there’s an interruption from an outage. Imagine that battery is connected to a smart grid, so we can use renewable energy like solar or wind to keep that battery fully charged.
