Charged Up

Our place, our power

Renewable energy is empowering communities across the country. 

 This is the story of you — of all of us — on a mission for a cleaner, healthier, charged-up Canada.

Act locally, create change nationally

Charged Up is about people power — people coming together in their communities to invest in a low-carbon economy.

We’re inspired by the people who are leading on renewables and making a difference in towns, cities and rural areas.

Do you want to learn how to get involved in the renewable energy movement? Want to join a local solar co-op or even start your own? Interested in connecting with leaders in your community on everything from wind energy to electric vehicles? Maybe you’re already a community leader and are looking for help to overcome technical or policy obstacles.

No matter what your experience with renewable energy, we’re here to connect the dots so you can help get Canada charged up with renewables.

Get Canada charged up with renewable energy

Renewable energy is the best choice for the environment and the economy. Tell the federal government that the global rush for renewables is on and you want Canada to be a part of it!

Renewable communities produce energy, jobs and hope

Community-led renewable energy projects provide a way for people to become active producers of energy rather than just passive ratepayers or consumers.

Geothermal: Tapping Earth's abundant energy

Geothermal energy is generated by heat from Earth’s rocks, liquids and steam. It provides steady energy and can serve as a more cost-effective and less environmentally damaging form of baseload power than fossil fuels or nuclear.

Renewable energy isn’t perfect, but it’s far better than fossil fuels

Any real comparison between oilsands and lithium batteries shows that oilsands products, from extracting and processing to transporting and burning, are by far the most destructive.

Reconciling energy and Indigenous rights

Most of Canada’s fossil-fuelled energy policies are on a collision course with reconciliation. Rapidly shifting from fossil fuels to renewable energy would be a win for the environment, climate, economy and Indigenous rights.
