2020-2022

2020 - 2022 Electricity Efficiency Plan

Electricity efficiency activities in Nova Scotia are subject to Utility and Review Board (UARB) approval.

On August 2, 2019 the UARB approved a Consensus Agreement between EfficiencyOne and NS Power for electricity efficiency services over 2020-2022.

The approved Agreement includes:

  • Three-year total investment of $110 million ($34.4M in 2020, $36.5M in 2021 and $39.1M in 2022)
  • 367.8 GWh of first-year electricity savings and 98.3 MW of demand savings
  • $4.5 million investment in upgrades for Nova Scotia’s Mi’kmaw communities and $3 million for upgrades in affordable multi-family housing

This means more Nova Scotians will be able to benefit from efficiency programs and save money on their electricity bills, while also helping to reduce carbon pollution.
