Energy & Transportation Team

The health of our planet depends on reducing our energy consumption and shifting to sustainable and renewable energy sources.

SPEC’s Energy & Transportation Team works to educate individuals, businesses, communities, and children about renewable energy, energy conservation and sustainable modes of transportation.

We also advocate at a municipal and provincial level for energy and transportation policies that move us toward energy conservation, responsible energy production and a healthy and just urban environment.


Monthly meetings are free and open to the public. We discuss current projects, upcoming events, and share new ideas.

  • Third Wednesday of the Month
  • 6:00-7:30pm
  • Virtual via Google Meet
