This summer, Aasa attended the “Scaling up the impact of renewable energy co-operatives in Canada” conference in Ottawa, where  Renewable Energy Co-op (REC) leaders met to discuss how they could collaborate to grow their impacts. While there, she spoke to Johan Hamels of the Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative about what RECs are and why they’re important for communities.

Since the conference, the leaders who attended have been working towards a co-operative of RECs called Community Energy Co-operative Canada that creates a way for these co-ops to work together. With this entity quickly coming to fruition, please enjoy this conversation about the exciting impacts of renewable energy co-ops!
