Around Town: Campbell River Wins Energy Plan Support

October 29, 2015

The City of Campbell River has been selected as one of three pilot communities from across Canada to receive 600 hours of support from leading energy experts. Campbell River will be assisted by experts at the Community Energy Association and QUEST – Quality Urban Energy Systems of Tomorrow – and Sustainable Prosperity. 

The City of Campbell River's Sustainable Community Plan and Community Energy Plan cover such areas as environment, economic development, land use planning, growth management, and housing infrastructure.

The City of Campbell River will receive support to help develop and implement a community energy plan.

This support is valued at approximately $45,000. Campbell River’s application was chosen from among dozens of submissions that were scored on how well they align with the Community Energy Planning: Getting to Implementation (GTI) in Canada initiative. GTI is a national, multi-year initiative focused on building the capacity of communities to implement community energy plans.

Campbell River’s Community Energy and Emissions Plan confronts the risks of rising energy prices and climate change with the vision that works toward a sustainable, resilient, prosperous and healthy community. It includes an energy and greenhouse gas inventory, targets and an action plan to reduce community energy demand and emissions.
