Community Role v2

This Matters if You Are: considering growth in your community or business, are interested in understanding and joining a dialogue about the future electricity needs in your area, or thinking about innovative community energy and climate change action plans.


Municipalities and businesses are looking for new opportunities to spur growth while maintaining the stability of everyday life. A large part of that planning includes considering the electricity requirements to meet future development plans. Regional electricity planning looks at the near-, medium- and long-term impacts of local growth, developments and initiatives driving the unique needs of your community.

Playing a role in regional electricity planning means understanding the electricity needs in your community and how local decisions are considered to meet those needs. It’s also a way for communities and businesses to ensure that your well-coordinated plan, like community energy or business development, considers the electricity needs to meet the goals of local projects and initiatives.

Communities play a critical role in the regional planning process.
