West-End Community Power Initiative (Toronto, Ontario)
Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 10:30 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
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.
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.
