HALIFAX – Nova Scotia families will benefit from good jobs, cleaner air and a more secure supply of energy at the lowest, fairest rates through amendments to the renewable electricity regulations. The regulations, released Thursday, require biomass be used at Port Hawkesbury Paper to provide renewable electricity starting this year, establish more flexibility for Nova Scotia Power to plan for various renewable targets and make it clear that power accessed through the Maritime Link must be used, if the project is approved by the Utility and Review Board.
