“The proposed changes announced as part of this Act will certainly help build a new clean economy, green collar jobs, as well as creating a ulture of conservation throughout the province,” said Elizabeth McDonald, CanSIA Executive Director. “CanSIA looks forward to working with the government as the programs and regulations associated with this new
legislation are rolled out. It is clear the McGuinty Government intends to open the door to make Ontario one of the world leaders as a renewable energy jurisdiction.”
CanSIA intends to be a very active participant in the public consultations to take place with Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure led by Minister George Smitherman, as the proposed legislation moves forward to adoption.
“The Ontario Green Energy Act, coupled with President Obama’s commitment to fostering growth in clean renewable energy, places solar firmly at the forefront of efforts to stimulate our global economy while safeguarding the environment for future generations,” said McDonald.
Further details about the Green Energy Act will be available at the Ontario Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure web site.
