Green Energy Introductory Seminar    Sun Jan 27, 2008, Woodbridge/GTA, ON

Green Energy Introductory Seminar ( GEI )
(one-day seminar -- various dates in 2008 -- details below)

The Green Energy Introductory Seminar is a one-day session that gives an overview of general concepts, resources, technologies and practices of Green Energy for domestic use. Technologies covered in this program include solar (photovoltaic) and wind electrical energy and domestic solar hot water and pool heating systems. Motivations such as energy independence, energy security, environmental impact and economic investment for using each technology will be discussed. The local resources that are needed for each technology are also brought into the decision making process. Participants will tour the onsite systems that help power the Kortright Centre. The objective is to enable home or cottage owners to decide what technologies make sense for them, considering their own motivations, and resources available. Once a technology has been identified further workshops are available to help people become informed consumers.

The GEI workshop will be held in an off-grid cottage on the grounds of Kortright Centre for Conservation. The group size is limited to 25 people. The cost is $75 for a day that runs from 10am to 4 pm. Lunch is included. Please register by calling 416-667-6295 then press option #3 or email cmacgillivray (at) Look for other workshop details at
