June is National Electricity Month!
Started in 2013, National Electricity Month is an initiative aimed at encouraging Canadians to learn more about how the electricity system works and to consider the value electricity brings to their everyday lives. In communities across the country, CEA and its member utilities will be answering questions about how the electricity system works.
Electricity is the backbone of the Canadian economy – it powers everything from household appliances to medical technology, smart phones, and computers to bank machines, businesses, and stores. By allowing consumers to see how the system works first-hand, CEA hopes to foster a national conversation on the value of electricity, stimulating and informing the discussion about the choices that need to be made today if Canada is to maintain a reliable, affordable, and sustainable electricity grid.
