Public input needed for West Kootenay 100% renewable energy plan

What is our vision for the future of the Village of New Denver? Join us on November 19 and share your ideas as we work towards our 100% renewable energy goals.

New Denver, Silverton, Slocan, Nelson, Rossland and the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) are developing a 100% Renewable Energy Plan to build on the region’s clean energy achievements and work toward a carbon neutral future with any remaining energy use coming from renewable sources. The goal is to have healthier and safer communities, stronger economies with better careers, and cleaner energy use locally.

On November 19, residents can learn more and give their input on how we can be successful in transitioning to 100% renewable energy while building strong community.

Topics such as housing density, deforestation, transportation and community planning are examples that illustrate how the community’s priorities can affect the action plan.

You’re invited to join the public renewable energy transition workshop November 19 at 7:00 p.m. at the Silverton Memorial Hall to learn more and provide your input into the West Kootenay 100% Renewable Energy Plan.

Local non-profit West Kootenay EcoSociety is developing the regional renewable energy plan and facilitating the workshop. Refreshments will be provided.
