CanWEA applauds new carbon pricing in Canada
July 2, 2019
The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) applauds the leadership of the Government of Canada for adopting a price on carbon for the electricity sector in carbon backstop jurisdictions. This measure will ensure that electricity generation carbon emissions will be internalized in the cost of production. This will help level the playing field with renewables, like wind energy and solar energy — which offer a clean, reliable, and competitive alternative to fossil fuels, says CanWEA.
