In keeping with our non-profit, social enterprise mandate to share the gifts we receive, Newo partners with a number of organizations for community benefit. If you have an idea or would like to help, please give us a call.
- EcoCity Edmonton
Along with our project partners at Windsor Park Community League, and Yellowhead Tribal Council, we won two of four 2018 EcoCity awards and a third in 2019 to develop solar PV projects and training programs in the Edmonton area!
- Lieutenant Governor of Alberta
Along with the Alberta Association for Life Wide Living and Maskwa & Associates, Newo is a co-host for the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards (artsawards.ca) in the month of September 2019 throughout the Battle River Watershed (www.arts-2019.org).
- Camrose Refugee Coordinating Committee (CRCC)
Newo partners with CRCC and Magnum Mechanical to train and employ recent refugees to Alberta through our water retrofit program (www.newo.energy/water). We are in discussion with the City of Camrose to implement this water conservation initiative city-wide in early 2019.
- Iron and Earth
Iron & Earth is led by oilsands workers committed to incorporating more renewable energy projects into their work scope and was created during the spring of 2015 when oil prices started to fall. Newo works with Iron & Earth to develop training and education programs in Alberta.
- Alberta EcoTrust
Together with the Alberta EcoTrust team, Newo is developing an empowering solar education program for Alberta youth. Starting with a single solar installation, we hope to foster a pay-it-forward model of mentorship and youth empowerment to pave the way toward clean energy systems worldwide.
- Battle River Watershed Alliance (BRWA):
Newo Global Energy and BRWA have partnered to provide water conservation and climate change education for the Battle River Watershed region. In the fall of 2017, Newo supported BRWA’s bike tour through central Alberta and in 2018 we are developing a water education program for the City of Camrose.
- Aki Energy, Manitoba
Newo partners with award winning Aki Energy to develop the social enterprise movement across Canada and around the world, to “connect those who most need work with the work that most needs doing.”
- Yellowhead Tribal Council Development Foundation (YTCDF)
Newo works with the YTCDF to develop solar and net zero training for First Nations communities in Alberta. These projects use local installations to develop skills and build local capacity (www.newo.energy/education). YTCDF and Newo were recently awarded a 2018 EcoCity Edmonton grant!
- De Waal Developments
Newo has been fortunate to work with Koen De Waal, owner of award-winning De Waal Developments in Edmonton, to provide net zero education while also developing community education projects in the Windsor Park neighbourhood.
- Maskwa & Associates
Newo works with Roy and Judy Louis of Maskwa & Associates (maskwa.net) to offer education on reconciliation. Most recently we partnered to facilitate a blanket exercise at Our Lady of Mount Pleasant School in Camrose, Alberta. We are grateful for Roy and Judy’s ongoing mentorship and guidance.
- United Nations in Canada
Newo has partnered with the UN in Canada – Green Corps since 2016 to provide job experience and skills training to Canadian youth in the green energy sector.
- Global Education for Girls and Women
Far ahead of solar technology, it is important to educate and empower girls and women if we are to address climate change and global problems (www.drawdown.org/solutions). Newo is partnering with local community organizations in Nepal to enhance education programming for young girls and women.
