Renewable Energy is our #1 choice of power in Pembroke Township. We reserve the right to have access and generate renewable sources of energy
The world’s attention and resources are increasingly turning towards renewable energy, as we work to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels. The renewable energy industry is booming, with the global market expected to reach 1.1 trillion US dollars by 2027. With exciting new projects and approaches emerging across solar, wind, hydro, tidal, geothermal and biomass energy on an increasingly frequent basis, renewables are truly revolutionising how we generate energy. While renewable energy has only recently become a commercially-viable alternative to traditional fossil fuels, many renewable technologies are far from new, with some in use since ancient times
