GPO Leader Mike Schreiner on expanding community Green energy opportunities

A great example of the Green approach emphasizing the connection between job creation, green energy and the empowerment of local communities and businesses:

Media Advisory – Green Party Leader, Mike Schreiner, reaffirms commitment to prioritizing grid access for local energy projects at Alliston farm

“Local solar projects like the Vander Zaag’s highlight why scrapping green energy is bad for our communities,” said Schreiner “The Green Party’s plan for a community FIT and microFIT program benefits our local economy by generating income for farmers, businesses and home owners. Local renewable energy projects create jobs that keep money in our communities while producing energy without pollution.”

On the topic of highlighting local innovators, I encourage you to join Mike Schreiner and I this Thursday for a conversation with business owner Philip Playfair of Lowfoot.
