Wascana Solar Co-operative takes Leadership Role in Newly Formed Regina Energy Transition (RET) Coalition
WSC President Josh Campbell reports on recent and upcoming RET Coalition activities
Many of you would have seen the open letter that I shared with the membership in February 2021 that was addressed to the mayor and City Council and shared with the media. In that letter I said that the undersigned would be committed to offering specific policy suggestions to help the city in its energy transition.
Since sending that letter, WSC has spearheaded and facilitated two meetings in which a coalition of interested individuals and organizations have got together to discuss the top four policies that we would like to champion to council.
We've even invited key guest speakers to educate us on these policies. Our next meeting is Thursday, March 25 and we hope to have our recommended policies solidified so that we can include them in a second open letter which we will write to the mayor and council.
I would like to thank our new board members Larissa Shasko and Jordan Chychrun for all of their work in this area.
Part of our mission at WSC is to "create a better understanding of solar power through education and advocacy" and I believe that leading the RET coalition is a big part of achieving this.
President, Wascana Solar Co-operative
