Expanding Community Solar Energy Programs

  • Introducing the Community Solar program to give communities more control over their renewable energy future.
  • Investing $8 million over four years to deliver targeted solar community benefiting projects and 7.5 million in solar gardens projects in Antigonish, Mahone Bay, and Berwick.
  • Solidifying funding for the Home Solar Program with a $3 million annual investment.
  • Creating a Not-for-Profit Solar Stream to provide electricity for nonprofits.

Our commitment to community solar energy will allow citizens to equitably participate in the solar market and benefit from solar projects whether they rent or own their home. We introduced the groundbreaking community-focused Shared Community Solar Program to give communities more control over their renewable energy future and to allow people unable to install solar panels on their homes the ability to participate in solar energy projects. We are committing an additional $8 million over 4 years to deliver projects for communities that need it most.

The Liberal government has invested $7.5 million in solar gardens projects in Antigonish, Mahone Bay, and Berwick helping these communities on their way to becoming Canada’s first net-zero towns and providing power to approximately 1,000 homes.

Our plan will also solidify funding allocated to the Home Solar Program by $3 million annually while promoting and expanding commercial solar projects with community and industry partners. A Liberal government will commit an additional $1.5 million to create a Not-for Profit Solar Stream to provide electricity for not-for-profits.
