The roles and responsibilities of a Municipality allow them to be leaders in the transition towards renewable electricity and a low-carbon future. They have a strong call to action, as their residents will experience the impacts of climate change. Municipalities across Canada have already demonstrated a variety of approaches to support renewable electricity and energy efficiency, which have not only proven that they are viable, but that they can lead to benefits such as cost savings, economic development, improved health, and increased livability.
