The Canadian province of Nova Scotia is aiming to be a leader in renewable energy by committing to generate 25% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2015 from a current level of 13%. Among the first steps to meeting this ambitious target is a new Community Feed-in Tariff (COMFIT) program to support community-owned projects using a variety of technologies and a competitive bidding program for medium- to large-scale projects. Both programs open up exciting opportunities for renewable energy developers and suppliers to participate in the greening of this Atlantic province, which currently relies heavily on coal to meet its electricity needs.
