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.
