Have Your Say on Renewable Energy Priorities

The City of Castlegar wants the community’s input to prioritize potential actions on renewable energy priorities.

The City is asking residents to share thoughts on the draft West Kootenay 100% Renewable Energy Plan. The plan proposes a list of actions around transportation, energy efficiency, and diversion of organic waste.

The draft plan is the product of a regional collaboration between Castlegar, Nelson, Rossland, Kaslo, Warfield, Silverton, New Denver, Slocan and the Regional District of Central Kootenay who are looking to create a pathway to using renewable energy for transportation, buildings, electricity and local infrastructure by 2050.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re seeking feedback in the following ways:
