Community Energy initiatives the focus for Ecotrust presentation to City Council this evening

A look at some of the past work and plans for the future towards community energy initiatives in the region will be the theme for a presentation to City Council tonight, that as part of the Committee of the Whole process this evening starting at 7PM.

Graham Anderson, the Director of Community Energy with Ecotrust Canada will speak to the council members towards energy themes, with Council to then consider a request for a letter of support later in the evening as part of the Regular Council session.

Mr. Anderson joined Ecotrust Canada in 2015 as a Financial Strategist supporting business planning and financial analysis across all program areas. 

In 2017, he worked in partnership with Heiltsuk First Nation to pilot the retrofit of community homes with high-efficiency heat pumps. That project underlined the need for solutions to support energy security in rural and Indigenous communities across British Columbia.

Much of his work has helped to put in place the foundation for Ecotrust Canada's Community Energy Initiative which was launched in 2018.
