Introducing Solar Scotia Energy Inc.

Solar Scotia Energy Inc. is a CEDIF (Community Economic Development Investment Fund) which finances solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on residential properties in Nova Scotia and sells solar hardware to 3rd parties. 

Nova Scotia's First Solar CEDIF 


Funds invested in Solar Scotia Energy Inc. have been used to finance solar PV installations for around 120 properties, primarily residential, throughout Nova Scotia.

Solar Scotia Energy's leased installations to date will reduce CO2 emissions by about 60,000 tonnes over the lifetime of the systems, approximately 25-30 years. This is the equivalent of planting 8,000-12,000 trees in Nova Scotia, or taking 244 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.
