Nova Scotia Uses Innovative New Policies to Support Renewable Energy
Nova Scotia has scored a number of firsts in polices to support investment in renewable energy. The Regional Municipality of Halifax has become the first jurisdiction in Canada to use the property tax system to finance renewable energy technologies and the proposed new COMFIT feed in tariffs for community power systems are the first to be based on the same level of profitability applied to conventional electric power utilities. The COMFIT tariffs will also be the first to support investment in in-stream tidal power systems.
