Nova Scotia is one of eastern Canada's Maritime provinces on the Atlantic. Consisting of a peninsula and offshore islands, it's home to puffins and seals, and popular for water sports like kayaking.

Nova Scotia has announced nearly CAD 18 million to support renewable energy, energy efficiency and youth internship programs.

The province will spend CAD 5.5 million over two years to offer rebates to homeowners installing solar panels.

The rebates will be part of its SolarHomes program administered by Efficiency Nova Scotia which approves the projects prior to installation.

Funding for this initiative comes from the province’s Green Fund, which is in turn funded through the Nova Scotia cap-and-trade auctions — held twice in 2020.

“The Green Fund is meant to help fight climate change in our province, and these projects will do that,” said Nova Scotia’s Environment Minister Gordon Wilson.

Nova Scotia is a province in eastern Canada, with Nova Scotia being Latin for “New Scotland.” Its capital and largest city is Halifax, which today is home to about 45 percent of the province’s population.
