Free workshop to provide tips on joining the renewable energy conversation

TU18-392

The City of Saskatoon is supporting Pollution Probe, a national environmental charity, in offering a public workshop on how to take an active role in shaping the future of solar and renewable energy in Saskatoon. The workshop will use a real, proposed project in Saskatoon – the solar power plant proposal by Saskatoon Light & Power – to illustrate techniques.

The workshop is part of the Energy Exchange Energy Ambassadors Program which supports communities that are in the early stages of developing renewable energy infrastructure. The program has been developed to help residents prepare to join the conversation about future energy infrastructure development.

The workshop is intended to provide information on:

  • How the energy system works, with a specific focus on local energy needs.
  • How the regulatory system applies to proposed projects.
  • How to source and review credible energy-related information.

The event details are as follows:
