Thanks to you, our donors, supporters and volunteers, we have reached an important milestone. We are proud to share the draft West Kootenay 100% Renewable Energy Plan, a collaboration with the nine local governments that have committed to 100% renewable energy by 2050: Castlegar, Kaslo, Nelson, New Denver, Slocan, Silverton, Rossland, Warfield & the RDCK.

You made this possible. You signed petitions, wrote letters, talked to your neighbours, and showed up at council meetings. You’ve taken an active role in getting your community to make the most ambitious commitments to addressing the climate crisis today.

You still have an important role to play.

The draft plan is ready for the next level of your input. You can help identify the priority areas that will make your community healthier and safer with a more stable economy. How do you think local governments can make it easier, cheaper, and faster to transition to 100% renewable energy?

Let your local government know that renewable energy is the highest priority for healthier and safer people in next year’s budget, and each year after.

People like you are making great strides in the transition to renewable energy in the West Kootenays that benefit your very own community. Keep up the momentum to create more opportunities for you, your family and neighbours.
