Ensuring we all benefit
Our job is to ensure that all Nova Scotians benefit from our energy resources.
Those benefits can take many forms:
- Businesses can compete and succeed in our growing energy sector
- Nova Scotian businesses and individuals can share in that success
- Environmental interests of the province will be protected and promoted
- Nova Scotians will enjoy long-term, affordable, sustainable energy
By 2015 we must—by law—transform Nova Scotia’s energy landscape so that 25 per cent of our electricity comes from renewable resources. By 2020, that grows to 40 per cent. At the same time, we will continue to develop and grow our substantial petroleum opportunities.
