Building Community Power with Ecology Ottawa in Nepean
“Building Community Power” is a program to foster leadership on clean energy in Ottawa’s communities. The program is hosting meetings and workshops across Ottawa over the course of two years, currently in Ottawa’s west end. Church groups, schools, community associations, and businesses are learning about how they can play a role in the clean energy future. Many are teaching others about the importance of clean energy and putting up solar systems to lead the way.
With Ontario’s Green Energy and Green Economy Act, there exists an unprecedented opportunity right now to shift energy systems to clean ones. Everyone has a role to play and the Building Community Power project is helping communities become clean power havens!
