The 5th Annual Green Energy Doors Open in September Offers Family Fun and a Unique Learning Opportunity
With Climate Change action being a cause of both concern as well as excitement for many people, Green Energy Doors Open is an initiative that provides a unique opportunity to channel questions, concerns, and ideas.
From Friday, September 9 to Sunday, September 11, owners of renewable energy sites and energy efficient homes will open their doors to the public for an opportunity to get close to actual projects and to share their experiences with developing such projects.
“We are very excited that we have close to 150 event hosts across the province who will showcase their renewable energy and conservation projects big and small,” explains Nicole Risse, OSEA’s Executive Director, “Our hosts are teaching us that we can power, heat, cool and move ourselves sustainably, while building resilient and prosperous communities and acting responsibly to mitigate Climate Change.”
This is an ideal opportunity to gather information and ideas for anyone that is interested in exploring renewable energy generation and energy efficiency technologies. It is also a great way to meet new people and to find out about the different ways in which to become involved in a sustainable energy initiative.
The event is family friendly and offers a lot of variety – both in terms of technologies that are being demonstrated as well as in the type of events that are taking place, ranging from community BBQs, over site tours and EV test drives, to workshops, movie screenings, and much more. There will even be a bicycle-powered concert by Tune Your Ride.
Events take place in communities all over Ontario and the Green Energy Doors Open website (www.GreenEnergyDoorsOpen.ca) and Green Energy Doors Open Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/gree
