Nova Scotia, which currently relies on fossil fuel generation to supply about 90% of its electricity, must "dramatically increase" its use of renewables and become less reliant on carbon-intensive energy sources, the framework says. "We can begin by maximizing our wind power potential," it says. "During the next decade, we could realistically add as much as 280 megawatts of new wind power to the 100 megawatts currently being developed in our province. This would require an investment of more than C$500 million, including improvements to our electricity transmission system." The additional wind power could be installed beginning in 2007 says the framework, which has been criticised for being short on specifics.
