Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) minister, Anne McLellan, told the board of the Canadian Wind Energy Association immediately before its conference that the federal government would be a "serious buyer" in a proposed "green power procurement" programme in which a percentage of the electricity used by federal buildings across Canada could be supplied from green sources. No green pricing or green power procurement program yet exists in Canada. NRCan announced a request for proposals for a contractor "to do economic analysis on the feasibility of green power purchases by the federal government" and to create a framework and manual.
