The City of Regina is in the process of creating a “blueprint for action” on renewable energy which they hope will help them to phase their dependency on fossil fuels by 2050.
“We need to make a statement for renewable energy and greenhouse gas emissions,” said Mayor Michael Fougere. “We are going to champion the cause, and we look forward to rallying people together to make this possible.”
The council meet earlier this week and unanimously approved a motion on renewable energy. The amendment called for actions to improve Regina’s environmental sustainability that could be implemented by the end of 2023. Will start with creating more green roofs, grey water, efficient buildings, electric buses, geothermal energy and banning bottled water in city facilities.
