Efficiency Nova Scotia is Canada’s first energy efficiency utility. Working with more than 100 local partners, we’ve helped 225,000 program participants complete energy efficiency projects, saving Nova Scotians $110 million in 2016 alone and preventing the release of 590,000 tonnes of GHG emissions annually.

Our work is funded by revenues from supplying electricity efficiency and conservation activities to Nova Scotia Power, which helps the utility meet Nova Scotia’s electricity needs. The cost of these services is included in electricity rates. The HomeWarming service is funded by the Province of Nova Scotia as part of a long-term plan to upgrade all low-income homes in Nova Scotia over the next 10 years.

Efficiency Nova Scotia is operated by EfficiencyOne, an independent nonprofit organization. Regulatory oversight is provided by the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board.
