[REA News] Nova Scotia Power is looking for the input of independent power producers so it can launch a new renewable generation program. The program is designed to include an additional 60 MW of power to Nova Scotia’s electrical system from renewable sources such as wind, solar, tidal and biomass. Proposals should fit into one of three categories; installations up to 100 kW using net metering, installations between 100 kW and 2 MW, and developments greater than 2 MW. Approximately 10 percent of the electricity consumed by the people of Nova Scotia is already generated through renewable energy, and the utility is seeking to increase Nova Scotia’s share of renewable energy by 25 percent. By the end of 2004, Nova Scotia Power’s total wind energy capacity will be approximately 31 MW.
