Members of the Green Energy Act Alliance, a coalition of leading environmental groups, industry associations, farmers and labour groups, were at Queen’s Park to congratulate the Liberals and NDP on the adoption of the Green Energy and Economy Act May 14. The Act aims to improve conservation programs, promote investment in renewable energy projects through North America’s first feed-in tariff program, and create green jobs. Introduced in November 2008, the Act is the cornerstone of the government’s plan to put Ontario on a path towards reducing Ontario’s greenhouse gas emissions, while becoming a leader in the emerging global renewable energy sector.
