The Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA) is pleased to welcome the launch of the Nova Scotia Green Choice Program, as announced by the Government of Nova Scotia today. The Green Choice Program Request for Proposals will be open to wind and solar energy projects, aiming to generate 350 megawatts of renewable electricity by 2028.
“The Green Choice Program will be key in helping Nova Scotia achieve its objective of 80% renewable energy by 2030,” said Jean Habel, CanREA’s Director for Quebec and Atlantic Canada. “Today’s RFP is an important signal for the renewable energy industry in Nova Scotia; CanREA members will play a decisive role in ensuring a responsible and sustainable energy transition.”
The Green Choice Program is a unique program that will allow participating customers to purchase up to 100% of the electricity they use from local renewable energy sources. It is part of Nova Scotia’s 2030 Clean Power Plan, aiming to reach 80% renewable energy by 2030 by adding a substantial amount of wind, solar and energy storage into the Nova Scotia’s grid.
