Ontario’s Green Energy Day needs you to open your doors
By Anthony Capkun
September 9, 2013 – The Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA) is conducting its second province-wide renewable energy showcase—Green Energy Day—on October 5, and it aims to have a presence in 50 Ontario communities: but it needs your help.
“The idea is simple: we want to encourage local renewable energy and conservation projects big and small to open their doors,” explained Kristopher Stevens, OSEA’s executive director. “This is an opportunity for homeowners, business owners and farmers to step up and showcase the successes they have had with their feed-in tariff (FIT), conservation and green transportation initiatives.”
Participating is easy, explains OSEA. In the past, people have carried out live demonstrations, hosted workshops, shown movies and conducted tours. Host benefits include a guide for organizing the event, literature and informative brochures, and giveaway items.
