NOTE: A list of public meetings follows this release.
Nova Scotians can help define the long-term future of the province’s electricity system through public consultation for the Electricity System Review.
“I encourage Nova Scotians to participate in the electricity review as we travel across the province,” said Energy Minister Andrew Younger.
“I’m looking forward to valuable discussions about the future of electricity policy in Nova Scotia.”
The meetings will include an interactive presentation by Mr. Younger, a workshop to gather feedback from the public and a question and answer period with the minister. Each session will include a 30-minute open house before the listed start time.
A live webcast in French and English will take place Oct. 15.
A schedule of the sessions, and a new study on system governance, have been added to the website at http://novascotia.ca/electricityfuture. Videos, summaries documents and previously released studies are also available.
Nova Scotians can also provide written comments, fill out an online survey, which will be available in October, or tweet with the hashtag #electricityfuture on Twitter. The feedback will help government understand Nova Scotians’ priorities for the future electricity plan.
