CCEDNet Endorses the Our Power Campaign

March 3, 2016

At their last meeting, CCEDNet’s Board of Directors endorsed the Our Power campaign, supporting community-based approaches to renewable energy.

Our Power, a project of TREC Renewable Energy Co-operative, is a voice for individuals and organizations celebrating renewable energy across Canada and around the world.

Last fall, CCEDNet’s Board identified climate justice and community renewable energy as a key priority for the Network, connecting community economic development’s entrepreneurial strength and focus on equity with the urgent need for transition to a low-carbon economy.

Where a favourable policy environment and the right incentives are in place, community-based renewable energy projects have had significant local economic impacts, building assets and benefitting communities.

Recommendations related to community renewable energy were included in CCEDNet’s recent brief to parliamentary pre-budget hearings.
