RDCK Seeking Public Feedback On 100% Renewable Energy Plan

Nelson, BC: The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) wants your input on renewable energy priorities for your community. Along with the RDCK, Castlegar, Kaslo, Nelson, New Denver, Rossland, Silverton, Slocan and Warfield have made the commitment to transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050; each community is hosting a webinar this November for the public to learn more about the plan and to provide input.

The nine local governments are collaborating to finalize the draft, West Kootenay 100% Renewable Energy Plan, to build on the region’s clean energy achievements and work toward a carbon neutral future. The goal is to have any remaining energy use coming from renewable sources to create healthier and safer communities, stronger economies with better careers, and cleaner energy use locally.

The renewable energy plan focuses on transportation, heating and cooling buildings, electricity and waste management.

You are invited to join the public webinar to provide your feedback on the priorities for the renewable energy transition in your community. The full schedule of webinar dates for each community are available online at www.westkootenayrenewableenergy.ca
