Community Power 2010 wraps up

Over 650 delegates hail successes and address obstacles at Community Power 2010

Energy Minister Brad Duguid had nothing but praise for delegates at the recent Community Power Conference host by OSEA. Calling upon the more than 650 attendees, to give themselves a sound round of applause, Duguid spoke with both pride and surprise at the overwhelming response to opportunities under the Green Energy Act for communities to generate green, clean electricity.  Thousands of individuals and community groups have applied for feed-in tariff contracts, beyond all expectations, he said, noting too the number of jobs being created as a result of the legislation.

This year Ontario marks 100 years of Community Power: electricity owned and operated by the people of the province. A century ago, in a ceremony in what was then the city of Berlin and is now Kitchener, Sir Adam Beck, the founder of Ontario Hydro, flipped the switch enabling electricity generated at Niagara Falls to be sent along public-owned transmission lines to municipal utilities in over a dozen communities, including Toronto.

In the spirit of Sir Adam’s slogan, “Power to the People” is the theme of the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association’s 2nd Annual Community Power Conference.
