Applications are open for another round of clean energy funding through the Low Carbon Communities program.

“Fighting climate change and boosting our clean energy sector are priorities for our government,” said Tory Rushton, Minister of Natural Resources and Renewables. “Communities across Nova Scotia are helping by championing innovative projects that reduce emissions and get us closer to our climate change goals.”

The Low Carbon Communities program is open to municipalities, First Nation bands and organizations, post-secondary institutions, businesses and non-profit organizations with clean energy projects that benefit communities.

Funding can be used for community planning and designs, feasibility studies, education, public engagement and initiatives that help put low carbon solutions in place. Some examples include:

  • energy efficiency audits and deep retrofit plans for buildings
  • studies for community solar, net-metered solar or energy storage
  • plans or studies for electric vehicle fleets and charging infrastructure.

Since launching in 2018, more than $3.1 million has been invested through Low Carbon Communities to support community-led projects across the province.
