HALIFAX, NS, May 2, 2017 (Chronicleherald.ca) -Nova Scotia Power says it's on track to reach its mandated target of 40 per cent renewable energy by 2020 after a new usage record was set in 2016.

Last year, 28 per cent of the electricity used by Nova Scotians came from renewable resources, the company said in a news release Friday, highlighting numbers first made public in February.

The current legislated requirement is 25 per cent. That rises to 40 per cent by 2020.
