N.S. government extends deadline for proposals on Bay of Fundy tidal energy (NS-Tidal-Power)
HALIFAX _ The Nova Scotia government is extending a deadline for proposals to study ways of transforming the powerful Bay of Fundy tides into electricity.
Developers looking to join a tidal demonstration program had earlier been given until Oct. 20 to submit their information, but they now have until Nov. 22.
Energy Minister Bill Estabrooks says that some companies have asked for more time to prepare.
The successful developer will join several other companies including Nova Scotia Power in the Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy project.
Undersea cables, expected to be installed by next summer, will carry power from four test sites to the provincial electricity grid.
