The GCP Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) FAQ will guide participants and interested participants in understanding the REC situation for the GCP. Under the GCP, RECs will be retired by Nova Scotia Power on behalf of program customers. Through this retirement process, customers will have credible usage claims which satisfy global carbon accounting requirements and can help reach renewable energy goals.
The carbon cost forecast provides a high-level estimated in dollars-per-megawatt-hour ($/MWh) for the period 2026 to 2035 and is based on the final models from Nova Scotia Power’s 2022 Evergreen Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). For questions related to the carbon cost forecast, please contact Nova Scotia Power at firstname.lastname@example.org
