Nova Scotia Municipalities to help finance green energy

The Province of Nova Scotia has introduced legislation permitting municipalities in the province to finance and install “energy efficient equipment”, which includes but is not limited to solar panels, on private property with the consent of the owner. This is expanding a power already in place in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

The initiative is expected to significantly expand the use of energy efficiency equipment and solar panels throughout the province.

The announcement is at http://www.gov.ns.ca/news/details.asp?id=20120402008 and progress on the Bill, including wording of the Bill, can be found at http://nslegislature.ca/index.php/proceedings/bills/municipal_government_act_-_bill_5
