For Immediate Release
One of the greatest opportunities for Canada is the shift toward clean growth. By investing in smart grid technology, Canada is supporting better electricity systems that lower costs for families and create greener and more sustainable communities.
Parliamentary Secretary Paul Lefebvre, on behalf of Amarjeet Sohi, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, today announced a $2.9-million investment in Bracebridge Generation Ltd.’s Smart Proactive Enabled Energy Distribution Intelligently Efficiently Responsive (SPEEDIER) smart grid project. This project will enable Parry Sound, Ontario, to eventually generate as much energy as it consumes, making it one of the first net zero communities in Canada.
