August 26th, 2010 by Iler Campbell LLP

Our congratulations to Brian for being named number 12 in Green Power Magazine’s list of the “Top 20 Movers & Shakers of the Green Energy Act”.

Green Power Magazine is a brand new publication that focuses on “the people making the policies and projects for Ontario’s green energy future.” They wrote,

“As a founding member of the Toronto Renewable Energy Co-operative (“TREC”), Brian helped launch the Toronto waterfront windmill project with resulted in Canada’s first community-owned wind turbine, located at Exhibition Place. As a result of the TREC project, Brian helped found OSEA [Ontario Sustainable Energy Association], supporting the replication of the TREC project across Ontario. From 1999 to 2008, Brian sat on OSEA’s Board of Directors, providing guidance and advice to the fledging organization. For almost two decades, Brian sat on the Ontario Co-operative Association’s Steering Committee, meeting monthly with the Financial Services Commission of Ontario to advance the financial policy framework for Ontario’s co-operative sector. Brian’s most significant contributions to the GEA [Ontario’s Green Energy Act] campaign were both the development of the amendment to the Ontario Co-operative Act, which liberates the ability of renewable energy co-operatives to raise community capital to finance community projects, and his extensive work with theOntario Power Authority to develop a workable and legally sound definition of ‘community power’.

“For his extensive service, Brian was presented the first Community Power Award as a tribute to his invaluable contribution. Brian continues to work on the GEA as a member of the Management Committee, a TREC Director and as a CPF [Community Power Fund] director.”

Congrats, Brian!
