Green Energy Initiative
The Green Energy Initiative is a platform that will identify and adapt an alternative, renewable energy infrastructure to create economic opportunities within the Greenstone region. The Initiative is also part of a plan to bridge the gap between rural energy cost and rural energy demand.
A Green Energy infrastructure would help provide systems that utilize low-impact, renewable resources. These resources can vary depending upon the location and include wind, photovoltaic, geothermal, river-run hydro, and bio-fuel, among others.
The Green Energy Initiative is broken down into to two key elements, energy and economics. The energy element will focus on adapting aspects of photovoltaic, solar air heating, solar water heating, and Earth energy (ground source heat pumps and geothermal) to current systems within the Greenstone region. The core foundation of the Initiative is to reduce energy costs in conjunction with producing stronger economic opportunities in the region.
The economic element of the project will focus on possible entry points for local businesses into the Green sector. Creating and maintaining jobs is a fundamental part of community sustainability and economic prosperity. The possibility of creating business opportunities in the Green sector will help diversify and help strengthen the local economy. The platform includes outlines for economic development within the Green Energy sector, Green Energy infrastructure, energy consumption practices, and identifies viable renewable energy resources that can be adapted to local business and residential energy systems.
The economy within the Greenstone region is evolving. Energy efficiency is a cornerstone to solidifying the economic foundations within the region. Acknowledging the changing demographics, using innovative, local solutions in approaching current cost-effectiveness issues in the energy sector, the Green Energy Initiative will help foster strength in the future and current economy.
