Northeast Network members have indicated that local alternative energy solutions will play a key role in meeting future growth and GHG reduction targets. We are excited to connect with you and discuss your perspectives about the electricity future of your community. Please share your energy priorities, projects, and initiatives so we can learn from each other. Share what you’re interested in that could help tailor future discussions and events for this Network.

To kick the discussion off, please introduce yourself, and what you're interested in from an electricity perspective.

We are developing a model of low carbon living targeting rural and remote communities including local Indigenous communities. We want to use new broadband capacity to enable better communication within and with rural and remote communities.
While local renewable energy is a key components local food, low carbon housing and the social skills needed to adapt are also critical.
We would like to learn what is planned that would help these communities become a more secure in a low carbon future.

Thank you again to the IESO for hosting the recent Energy Forum, which was most informative, and included some great best practice examples of projects taking place here in northeastern Ontario. reThink Green is a not-for-profit organization based in Sudbury which provides programs and services to assist municipalities, townships, and First Nations (Smart Green Communities) and Business/Industry, Not-for- Profits, Education, Health, etc. (Green Economy North) as they transition to a low carbon future. This includes information re: the availability of grants, rebates, etc. and the various tools needed to advance systemic change. I would be pleased to provide further details upon request.

Thanks everyone for participating in the Northeast Network discussion on Jan. 20. A summary report is available on the events page. If you missed it, you can watch the recorded presentations that are also available. We were really pleased to hear that attendees want to have more discussions about electricity planning focused on the unique characteristics and challenges faced by Northeast communities. We will be sure to accommodate that.

What was your favourite topic or part of the Jan. 20 event? What would you like to see discussed in future events?
