Community Energy Planning
Community Energy Planning is a full community assessment of current energy usage, predicted future energy usage, community energy visioning, associated greenhouse gas emissions and an implementation plan. The plan looks at each scale – building-level, community-level, and utility-scale economic development options. The plan is technical, social and environmental in nature. It includes a variety of community engagement sessions to ensure that the plan is not just technical, but meets the short, medium and long-term goals of the community. A community energy plan is a valuable tool for communities wanting to create opportunities for their community in renewable energy and ensure they have a long-term plan for energy security in their community.
