End of REP Won’t Stop Renewable Energy in Alberta
April 24, 2019
Despite challenges, renewable energy firms will continue to find opportunities in Alberta, says Evan Wilson, the Canadian Wind Energy Association’s (CanWEA) regional director for the prairies.
Wilson’s comments come after the election of Jason Kenney as premier of the province. Kenney and his United Conservative Party (UCP) plan to scrap Alberta’s Renewable Energy Program (REP).
Kenney will assume office on April 30, after winning the provincial election on April 16. He pitched the removal of the REP during his campaign.
