Solar Canada and Taber Shop Talk!

We just wrapped up an exciting week in Taber, Alberta! If you haven’t heard, we are exploring the potential to use inactive oil and gas infrastructure as a foundation for renewable energy development. If development goes well this year, we hope to break ground on a pilot project in Taber next year.


On Monday, we hosted a Shop Talk Night at the Oilmen’s Club to engage with oil and gas workers, landowners, and industry to discuss the concept. The panel included our core project team who you can read about at our new RenuWell website. We will keep you up to date as this concept unfolds.

Next week we are heading to Calgary to do some major networking at Solar Canada.This is the first year we have been able to attend and are really excited to meet a bunch of new people and potential partners. If you are there, please drop by and visit us at our booth!

Hope to see you soon,

Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism. It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.

We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.

We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
