I realize this is a huge topic with great deal of variation in degree of investment and type of energy source implemented, but thought I would drop this screenshot below.  Any others out there with forward-thinking municipal employees/leaders who have forged ahead of the curve using either the raw materials or location setting for energy production?

Well it wasn't a municipal incentive, but a group of local entrepreneurs have started a geothermal industrial park within boundaries of the village of Valemount in my valley.  So far the site has attracted a small cedar mill to expand it's operations on the site, and the local micro brewery is planning to put it's production expansion on this site as well.
