Nova Scotia announces community wind feed-in tariff
The provincial government of Nova Scotia, Canada has announced new regulations that will provide a fixed feed-in tariff for community-based wind and other renewable energy projects. Rates, to be set by the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board by next spring, will vary according to technology with different tariffs for wind projects larger than 50 kW and for micro-scale installations less than 50 kW. "These greener, local projects will help to create good jobs, provide a better future for Nova Scotians and reduce our overall dependence on imported carbon-based sources," says Premier Darrell Dexter.
