Public Workshop - Help Plan for the City’s Renewable Energy Future

The City of Castlegar invites the community to a public workshop to help develop the West Kootenay 100% Renewable Energy by 2050 Plan. 

The workshop, facilitated by the West Kootenay EcoSociety, is the public's chance to be involved in planning for 100% renewable energy by 2050. The plan will be the guide to reducing energy consumption, lowering emissions, saving money and encouraging innovation in a variety of sectors.

Workshop topics include high-performance buildings, transportation, waste management, electricity production, and education and training for workers in the field of renewable energy.

We want to hear from you!

▪ What concerns do you have for the future of renewable energy in our community?

▪ What challenges exist in getting to 100% renewable energy by 2050?

▪ What ideas do you have for transitioning Castlegar to a low carbon future?
