Supporting our community has never been more important. That’s why, during the early weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, EfficiencyOne, Nova Scotia Power, and the Government of Nova Scotia agreed to redirect $3 million from the HomeWarming program to address urgent needs in communities across the Province.
The safety of our customers, partners and employees is our top priority. When restrictions and protective measures were introduced to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we paused delivery of our in-home and business services. With the help of our delivery partners, we began planning how to press play when restrictions were lifted, safely and responsibly.
Innovation and partnership are two of the values behind our work with Nova Scotia’s 13 Mi’kmaq communities to install energy efficient upgrades in 2,400 band-owned homes. These free upgrades— including insulation, heat pumps, and draft-proofing —help make homes in Mi’kmaq communities more comfortable, healthier, and less expensive to heat and cool.
EfficiencyOne is developing and delivering resources and programs to help Nova Scotians reach energy efficiency goals not only this year, but every year.
