To the Editor,
Given the high cost of building new energy generating infrastructure, energy conservation is therefore clearly the least expensive way to meet any growth in energy demand.
Unfortunately, energy demand in B.C. and around the world is set to grow rapidly over the next couple of decades, and energy conservation on its own is not going to be sufficient to satisfy that demand.
A big difference in this province is that we have the fortune to pick and choose from an almost limitless assortment of renewable energy resources.
I hope we avail ourselves of these renewable energy resources, creating jobs while also keeping ourselves on the green path to continued prosperity.
