Ontario launches Clean Energy Registry program

April 5, 2023

RCC has been advocating to support businesses in achieving their clean energy goals. In support of our advocacy, Ontario officially launched a new clean energy credit (CEC) registry. Proceeds from the sale of CECs will help keep costs down for electricity ratepayers and fund the construction of clean electricity projects in Ontario through a newly created Future Clean Electricity Fund. This fund will help build Ontario’s clean energy advantage as the province competes for and attracts new investments in electric vehicle and battery manufacturing, clean steel, and other sectors, while continuing to build its clean economy.

“RCC supports the Ontario government’s commitment to develop a Clean Energy Credit system,” said Diane J. Brisebois, President and CEO of RCC, following the announcement. “Delivering products – be it clothing or groceries, toys or power tools – to our customers in an environmentally friendly way is a top-of-mind imperative for retailers.”
