In a recent on-line poll Green Party of Alberta members voted unanimously to adopt the following motion:
The Green Party of Alberta supports the introduction of laws and regulations that create a level playing field for geothermal energy, both for heating and for generation of electricity. In particular, the GPA supports creation of a licensing system for geothermal wells.
Greens know that geothermal energy could contribute to reducing Alberta’s GHG emissions and could provide employment for many Albertans now out of work. The provincial government needs to act now so this potential can be realized.
