May 24: Law Introduced to Implement Climate Leadership Plan
The government introduced Bill 20, which would implement key elements of Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan. If passed, the $20 per tonne carbon levy would take effect Jan. 1, 2017. The money raised through the carbon levy will be reinvested in Alberta to reduce carbon pollution and provide rebates to help Albertans adjust. The law would also establish Energy Efficiency Alberta as the agency that’ll develop and deliver provincial-scale energy efficiency and small scale renewable programs and services.
