UARB Sets Prices For Community Wind Energy In Nova Scotia


The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) applauds the recent decision by the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (UARB) for setting feed-in-tariff (FIT) prices for small and community wind energy.

The UARB set a price of C$0.452/kWh for small wind turbines (50 kW and under) and C$0.139/kWh for larger community wind projects (above 50 kW).

‘The price set by the UARB for small and community wind will allow communities in Nova Scotia to take an active role in the province's renewable electricity future,’ says Emilie Moorhouse, distributed and community wind policy manager at CanWEA. ‘In addition to community involvement, the small and community wind feed-in tariff will provide an important local economic stimulus by creating more jobs in this province, which is already home to a leading manufacturer of 50 kW turbines.’
