2018/2019 Regional Electricity Forums
These full day forums were an opportunity to bring together a cross section of community and business audiences representing municipal, Indigenous communities, local distribution companies, energy services and associations to explore the future direction of the electricity sector.
Building upon last year’s dialogue and learnings, the 2018/2019 forums explored how the unique characteristics of each community can factor into regional and broader provincial electricity planning.
Dates and locations for the Fall 2019 Regional Electricity Forums will be announced in Q2 2019.
