CanGEA Contributes In Open Letter To Premier Rachel Notley, Minister of Energy Margret McCuaig-Boyd and Minister of Environment Shannon Phillips
CanGEA, along with a dozen renewable energy companies, industry associations and think-tanks released the following open letter to the Alberta government. The letter, shared by the Pembina Institute can be found here.
The Alberta government has demonstrated strong leadership via it’s Climate Leadership Plan, with a strong commitment to build renewables to reach 30% of power generation. In order to enforce this target and provide stable market conditions for us to reach it, we are asking to legislate a firm target.
The Alberta government will be putting together legislation to create the Climate Leadership Act that will put in motion policy developed in the Climate Leadership Plan. As signatories of this letter we are asking the Alberta government to legislate the 30 per cent by 2030 target for renewables required to transition Alberta’s electricity supply mix away from coal.
