Rural BC Green Energy

The purpose of this project is to increase rural knowledge of green energy opportunities and to develop new tools that will facilitate increased rural benefits from green energy development in the MPB epidemic zone of BC.

The project has four major components and objectives:
1) To work directly with a number of small rural interior communities and First Nations in the MPB epidemic zone to assist them in furthering their proposed green energy development projects and concepts.
2) To create and circulate a variety of green energy information resources and analysis tools to rural communities and First Nations throughout the MPB epidemic zone to assist them with the identification and development of green energy development opportunities in their respective communities.
3) To work with green energy industry development organizations and green energy businesses to identify and implement actions that would increase rural community benefits from the green energy sector development in the interior of BC.
4) To organize and deliver a series of regional outreach and knowledge extension activities throughout rural interior BC
