Peace Energy to unveil plans for the future

DAWSON CREEK, B.C – Just a group of local people investing in a better, cleaner future for their children, Peace Energy Cooperative has some exciting news to share with the people of the Peace Region.

“We have goals, ideas, a business plan. We¹re signing up new members every week,” says Barbara Swail, board member of Peace Energy, A Renewable Energy Cooperative. “Renewable energy is going to make a difference for the Alberta and B.C. Peace Country.”

Peace Energy will be hosting a public presentation in Dawson Creek on Saturday March 12, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., at the Kiwanis Performing Arts Centre, 1100-95th Avenue, following the members’ Annual General Meeting.

Peace Energy is a member-owned, member-operated Peace Country-based cooperative that aims to develop clean, environmentally-friendly, renewable energy resources in the Peace Region. The public presentation is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Peace Energy and its business plans, and about wind prospects for the region from Aeolis Windpower Corp., a Sydney, B.C. based company that has been exploring this region for the last year. Also presenting will be Ference Weicker & Company, a Vancouver-based consulting firm that helped write the Peace Energy business plan.

“People have a lot of questions about Peace Energy and want to know how they can get involved. We¹re hosting the public presentation to answer many of these questions,” Swail says.

“I see Peace Energy as one of those rare opportunities to invest in our beliefs,” says Peter von Tiesenhausen, well-known Alberta-based artist and long-time member of Peace Energy. “The time has come and the opportunity has arisen.”

With nearly 150 members, Peace Energy Cooperative is well on its way to becoming an important player in the renewable energy field in Western Canada. More members are needed to continue this important initiative. Visit www.peaceenergy.ca, or phone 250-782-3882 for more information.
