Nova Scotia Renewable Electricty Plan includes COMFIT

In April, 2010 Nova Scotia released its Renewable Electricity Plan. The Plan sets out the Province’s goal that 25% of electricity generated will come from renewable sources by 2015, and that 40% of electricity will come from renewable sources by 2020.

Among other significant provisions, the Plan establishes a community-based feed-in tariff ("COMFIT") for 100 MW of renewable energy projects connected to the grid at the distribution level. The Plan also includes programs to assist community groups in the development of these COMFIT projects.

The Plan will also continue to strengthen Nova Scotia's position in developing tidal energy and smart grid technologies.
