BLACK RIVER HYDRO LIMITED
Neal Livingston has a 30-year career as a renewable energy developer and policy advocate for Small Hydro, and domestic sized hydro, solar, and wind power.
Neal founded Black River Hydro Ltd. in 1984, to establish a 220 kilowatt hydro-electric plant. This was Nova Scotia's first private company selling electricity to the grid. Black River Hydro has a long term contract to sell its power to Nova Scotia Power.
Livingston has one of the first modern micro-hydro units at his home since 1980, stand-alone off-grid, and then in 1993 was the first to net meter with NS Power.
