New Bill Changes Municipalities’ Role in Renewable Energy
Frank Sperduti, a partner at Borden Ladner Gervais LLP who practises environmental law, highlights the impact Bill 150 may have on the role of municipalities in renewable energy projects.
Bill 150, the Green Energy and Green Economy Act, 2009 (“Bill 150”), had first reading on February 23, 2009. If passed, Bill 150 would enact the Green Energy Act, 2009, amend and repeal 21 existing statutes, and significantly alter municipal involvement in renewable energy projects.
