The City of Campbell River is a signatory to the BC Climate Action Charter and has a Community Energy and Emissions Plan that targets energy conservation and renewable energy generation. Renewable energy is energy that comes from non-fossil fuel sources such as solar, wind, tidal, geothermal, biomass, sewage heat recovery and others. Campbell River is one of BC’s Solar Communities and has solar hot water installations on four municipal facilities, as well as a solar ready regulation requiring all new single family homes to be built with the piping and conduits for solar hot water. The City of Campbell River, and its economic development function, Rivercorp, are also part of a provincial network called the Pacific Tidal Energy Development Consortium, working to promote tidal energy development in Campbell River and the surrounding region.
