Efficiency Nova Scotia Corporation helps homeowners and businesses use energy better. We’re the leading resource for learning about energy efficiency, and taking action on energy-saving projects.
Efficiency Nova Scotia is independent of both Nova Scotia Power and government. It’s not a crown corporation or a provincial agency. That’s the way Nova Scotians wanted it. During the public consultations that helped create Efficiency, Nova Scotians said power utilities were in the business of selling energy, not conserving it, while with government in charge, efficiency programs can fluctuate or be discontinued depending on political agendas or changes in government. It was decided that a regulated, independent body should be in charge of conservation and efficiency programs in Nova Scotia. It’s an approach that has thrived in other jurisdictions around the world.
