About the province's large renewable procurement process

This public consultation is part of the province's Large Renewable Procurement Process, created to give municipalities a stronger voice and additional opportunities to participate in the development of large-scale renewable energy projects. 

While the province is the final authority on the development of these large-scale renewable energy projects, the City of Kingston can offer support for them through council. Decisions made at the rural advisory committee meeting will be considered at a special meeting of council at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 26 in City Hall's Council Chamber, 216 Ontario St.
