Nova Scotia's First Solar CEDIF 

Solar Scotia Energy's first two share offerings have raised over $1.7 million.


Funds invested in Solar Scotia Energy Inc. are being used to finance solar PV installations for around 70 properties, primarily residential, throughout Nova Scotia.

Solar Scotia Energy's installations to date will reduce CO2 emissions by about 20,000 tonnes over the lifetime of the systems, approximately 25-30 years. This is the equivalent of planting 4000-5000 trees in Nova Scotia, or taking 80 cars off the road!

What is a CEDIF?

A Community Economic Development Investment Fund (CEDIF) is an initiative of the Province of Nova Scotia to spur economic development. There are a number of benefits to investing in a CEDIF, including the opportunity to invest your money locally and encourage economic growth in Nova Scotia, as well as tax advantages.
