Harness Your Power!

CPAWS Northern Alberta is excited to be a Community Partner of Park Power, a Sherwood Park-based retailer of electricity, natural gas, and Green Alberta Energy carbon offsets. Park Power is a positive member of the local community and through their Community Partner Program 10% of profits are donated to support of local non-profits. 

When you choose to switch to Park Power you can choose CPAWS Northern Alberta as the recipient to receive 10% of the profits from your power bills.
