Renewable Energy Projects In Your Community
In developing and operating our wind, solar, geothermal, and other renewable energy projects in Canada and the United States, we are strongly committed to maintaining good relationships with all of our stakeholders. We pursue this commitment by:
- managing all of our operations and new facilities with respect for our neighbours and their land;
- consulting with the individuals who live and work in the vicinity of these operations, as well as those who may become our neighbours as our renewable energy portfolio grows;
- maintaining our projects to the highest possible standards; and
- keeping neighbours, community residents, and officials informed about our activities.
Enbridge is committed to protecting the public and the environment, and we build safety into every step of our operations.
We are contributing to North America’s shift toward a lower-impact energy production mix by investing in renewable and alternative energy technologies that complement our core operations and provide environmental benefits.
Enbridge has interests in more than 1,600 megawatts (MW) of green power capacity, thanks to our $3-billion portfolio of renewable energy projects – including wind, solar, and geothermal – in Canada and the United States.
We're advancing renewable and alternative energy projects because we believe that finding lower-impact energy solutions is in everyone’s best interests. Society is looking to greater use of green energy over the long term, and we believe we can lead the way right now -- with projects that reduce impact on the environment, curtail greenhouse gas emissions, and address the issue of global climate change.
We've also committed to stabilizing our own environmental footprint as we continue to grow. Through our Neutral Footprint initiative, we have committed to planting a tree for every tree we remove, conserving an acre of natural habitat for every acre we permanently impact, and generating a kilowatt of renewable energy for every kilowatt of power our operations consume.
