Efficiency Tax to Come Off, Power bills To Go Down!

I am pleased to announce that Nova Scotians will get a break on their power bills with new energy efficiency legislation being introduced today (April 7th). The legislation removes the efficiency fee from electricity bills, bringing bills down next year.

Energy Minister Andrew Younger says the legislation improves how energy efficiency programs are delivered and introduces competition for Nova Scotia Power. The province’s energy efficiency plan was also introduced and sets objectives that will save energy, lower costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It proposes a new model for energy efficiency program delivery to ensure investments are more competitive, affordable, and accountable.
