Event description

Description

Join us in Raymond for our summer QUEST AB Chapter event which will feature some of the exciting smart energy solutions, opportunities, and community initiatives taking place in across Southern Alberta. There is limited space, so register now!

The Town of Raymond is taking renewable energy to the next level by powering its municipal infrastructure using only solar panels – believed to be one of the first net zero community solar project in Canada. Join us in the Town of Raymond for a tour of their systems and to learn more from the Town's Economic Development Coordinator, Greg Robinson and CAO, Kurtis Pratt. We will also hear from Jason Atkinson, Director of Operations for Distributed Generation, at ENMAX who worked to install the system in Raymond, and is working to do the same with other communities across the province.

Participants will be given a platform to voice and discuss potential opportunities, challenges, successes, partnerships, and their vision for energy in AB communities. Learn about relevant projects, actions, and smart energy news for the Alberta market, including updates on the AUC Distribution Inquiry and provincial government engagement. Have your say in the open forum discussion along side the communities, regional partnership entities, local universities and colleges, energy providers, developers, the agriculture sector, provincial government representatives, and other key stakeholders.
