A program in Canada’s Nova Scotia, aims to add solar energy to buildings

A government program in Nova Scotia looks to help community organizations add solar energy to their buildings and Nova Scotia leads the fight against climate change.

This year, there are 26 successful applicants to the Solar Electricity for Community Buildings Program. These non-profit organizations can now add solar electricity systems to their buildings and sell the energy generated to their local electricity utility under a 20-year contract.

“Across the province, we are building a strong, green economy that creates jobs and benefits everyone,” Energy and Mines Minister Derek Mombourquette said in a release. “This program helps strengthen local organizations as we work towards some of the most ambitious climate change goals North America.”
