Building Community Power CO-OPeratively: A Renewable Energy Summit
Under the Green Energy and Green Economy Act, 2009 (GEGEA), the Government of Ontario has made it easier for community groups to participate in renewable energy generation. On Sunday, June 10, the Hamilton Halton Energy Awareness Team (HHEAT) will be holding Building Community Power CO-OPeratively: A Renewable Energy Summit at the Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG).
“HHEAT welcomes everybody interested in renewable energy cooperative projects to an afternoon of information gathering and networking,” says Hamilton project coordinator Beatrice Ekwa-Ekoko.
The keynote speaker is Rob Yost, President of Local Initiative for Future Energy (LIFE) Co-op.
Feature presentations include:
• Information about community power projects in Ontario
The June 10 summit includes local technology vendors and exhibitors.
A Community Power 101 crash course is being offered starting at 12:30 pm for those who have not attended previous HHEAT workshops.
-- Registration is required --
“The co-operative model is a democratic vehicle community members can apply to develop local, profitable and inclusive renewable energy projects as an alternative to large, centralized power generation,” continues Ekwa-Ekoko.
