The NDP government will give Alberta greenhouse operators a break on the carbon tax when it takes effect on Jan. 1.

The province has confirmed to News Talk 770 that Rachel Notley’s administration will introduce a greenhouse grower’s rebate in the new year. An official announcement is expected on Saturday.

The rebate will allow operators to recoup up to 80 per cent of the carbon levy. The province says this should bring them in line with similar programs in other jurisdictions, like British Columbia.
