Event Details

Please join City of Toronto Councillor Mike Layton and greenTbiz as we launch the West-End Community Power Initiative this April.

Hosted by the Korea Town, Bloorcourt and Bloor Annex Business Improvement Areas, this event is a community-based initiative that will explore how local residents, businesses and organizations can find opportunities to power their communities more sustainably.

FREE SEMINARS

A series of seminars (open to the public with pre-registration) will provide attendees with an understanding of their local renewable energy options and provide inspiring stories of successful Toronto-based projects. Seminar topics include:

  • Renewable Energy 101;
  • A local church's rooftop solar project;
  • Councillor Layton's home-based geothermal system; and
  • A local bulk-buying initiative to make renewable systems more accessible.

WARD 19 WORKING GROUPS

Are you looking to develop green power projects in Ward 19? One objective of the WECPI is to establish three community-based working groups that will continue to promote and develop local options for pursuing renewable energy.  These groups include:

  • Rooftop Solar PV;
  • Geothermal; and
  • Bulk-Purchasing Options (for homeowners and small businesses).

EXHIBITORS

An outdoor exhibit (weather permitting) will feature a variety of exhibitors including:

  • Solar developers;
  • Sustainable food;
  • Local refreshments and vendors;
  • Community power organizations.
