The Coalition for Responsible Energy Development in New Brunswick hosted a webinar today organized by MJM Solar Solutions.
We gathered solar experts and leaders from New Brunswick to discuss how we can work together to increase NB’s Green Energy. The webinar participants discussed solar installations, job creation, community engagement, technical and real world applications of solar in NB, training, and policy.
