The Notley government is being urged to legislate firm targets for renewable power in Alberta.
Green energy groups and the Pembina Institute say in a letter to the premier that while the province has shown strong leadership in its Climate Leadership Plan, they question how the targets can be enforced without legislation.
The government is moving to phase out coal-fired power by 2030, while tripling renewable energy’s share of the power supply to 30 per cent.
The groups that signed the letter are asking the Alberta government to turn the target into law.
The letter says more companies would be willing to enter the market if they’re certainty, meaning bids for green energy projects will be lower.
