• Develop and implement community energy plans
• Hire and train community energy champions
• Assess and develop renewable energy projects and partnerships
• Develop energy knowledge, skills and capabilities
The deadline to apply is August 6, 2021 at 11:59PM EDT. Further information and the application form are available on the IESO web site. If you have any questions about the programs, including eligibility criteria, please contact the IESO’s Indigenous Relations team at IndigenousRelations@ieso.ca.
