Charged Up

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.

Our place, our power

Charged Up is helping build the climate and clean energy transition movement, and we hope you’ll join our network of champions.

We’re inspired by the many people leading the transition to renewable energy in towns, cities and rural areas throughout Canada. Here you’ll find some of their inspiring stories. We believe the energy transition should be guided by justice, diversity and equality — principles that also guide our work. Everyone is welcome in this community, and everyone has a role to play.

Charged Up is here to help you and your community achieve the energy future you want. Join us to connect with a network of like-minded champions. You’ll also receive resources and opportunities to act locally and support policies that protect the climate.
