Community Feed-In Tariff Program
What is a Feed-In Tariff?
A Feed-In Tariff or FIT is a straightforward way to contract for renewable energy generation. It provides standardized program rules, prices and contracts.
The Nova Scotia Feed-In Tariff program is divided into two streams: Community Feed-In Tariff (COMFIT) and a Feed-In Tariff for Developmental Tidal Arrays.

What is COMFIT?
The Nova Scotia Community Feed-In Tariff, or COMFIT, is designed for locally-based renewable electricity projects. To be eligible, the projects must be community-owned and connected at the distribution level (i.e., typically under 6 MW).
Ministerial approval is required in order to proceed with your COMFIT project. The program began accepting applications on September 19, 2011. The first round of project approvals was held December 16, 2011. To view more COMFIT news, please visit our COMFIT Progress Updates.
