Nova Scotia Energy Minister Charlie Parker announced the latest round of Community-Feed-in Tariff approvals today, Feb. 27, for renewable electricity projects proposed for Spiddle Hill, Wedgeport, Bayswater, Cheticamp and North Preston. These projects are now able to proceed to the next stage of development.
COMFIT provides eligible groups an established price per kilowatt hour for projects producing electricity from renewable resources such as wind, biomass, in-stream tidal and run-of-the-river tidal developments. The feed-in tariff rates were established by the Utilities and Review Board in September.
Eligible groups include municipalities, First Nations, co-operatives, universities, community economic development funds and not-for-profit groups.
