Happy Environmental November News Green Drinkers St. Johns, Newfoundland and Labrador
Our next meeting will be held at Bitters 7:00pm on Wednesday November 26th, 2014.
I thought it would be AWESOME to finally post some awesome news just encase some have not heard.
Biogas and Net Metering Initiatives Fulfill Energy Plan Commitments
Our province has FINALLY decided to jump on board with using the Methane from our St. John's Landfill to power homes in the St. Johns area. The Methane has been collected previously but was being burned off. NOW the province has agreed to use the power instead of wasting it... GOOD START!!
We all know that it is crucial to take GIANT leaps instead of baby steps...... but progress is always a good thing when in the right direction !
“This work is the next logical step in developing a net metering policy that reflects best practices and lessons learned from other jurisdictions. We have been working with Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro and Newfoundland Power on a framework for the net metering policy and have also met with staff of the Public Utilities Board to discuss implementation issues. Any policy put in place will provide value for ratepayers, and will be designed to meet the needs of the majority of homeowners in Newfoundland and Labrador.”
