Who are we?
Welcome to the home base of Responsible Energy Action (REA), an education and action group that focuses on how we obtain and use energy.
Our regular meetings are usually held the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Our next regular meeting will be November 22, 2017 at 5:15 p.m. at the People’s Place Library, Antigonish. Please join us if you can! All are welcome.
From the time the group formed in late 2011 through late 2014, we worked hard to educate ourselves and our community on the environmental, health, economic and social aspects of unconventional petroleum extraction.
All the while, and especially since 2014, we have also studied and supported sustainable energy alternatives, now our current focus: how can these contribute to the Nova Scotia economy? How can we all use energy more responsibly? How can we help ensure equitable access to energy?
We are collaborating with our local governments and with other local stakeholders on a solar energy initiative (Antigonish Community Energy Co-op), and on a Community Climate Change initiative (Antigonish Climate Resilience). On energy justice we work with the Antigonish Poverty Reduction Coalition. Please join us!

Antigonish is a Blue Dot Community!
On October 19th and 20th, 2015, Antigonish Town and County Councils unanimously endorsed the Blue Dot declaration! Once again our municipal councils are showing their leadership on environmental concerns. REA expresses appreciation for the support of our councillors, mayor, and warden for this and other sustainability initiatives.
