Ok, just for those in the GTA. In Mississauga tomorrow (Tuesday, Oct 28th), there’s an Open House and Town Hall style meeting with the Ontario Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, George Smitherman. I’ll be there and so will some people I know who are working on developing solar energy installations under the Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program (RESOP, or sometimes just SOP). Might be interesting.
Also, if you read this and you know ANYONE who knows ANYONE who is developing an installation under the RESOP program, be they farmers, people putting panels on their roofs… anyway, please call or email me. I want to talk to them.
Open House Details:
Talk to George
Want to give Energy and Infrastructure Minister George Smitherman your thoughts on the best ways to address climate change and ensure a sustainable electricity system for our children? The Minister is hosting a town hall meeting in Mississauga tomorrow night to specifically discuss Ontario’s long term energy needs and how the Southwestern GTA factors into it. This is also a great chance to see how the Minister plans to walk his talk on a greener electricity system and to take a new approach to reducing the environmental footprint of our currently heavy energy use.
WHERE: RBC Theatre in the Living Arts Centre, 4141 Living Arts Drive, Mississauga
WHEN: Tuesday, October 28, Open House: 5 – 7 PM and Town Hall Meeting: 7 – 9:30 PM.

Oh, and people really liked the photos last week, so here’s one of the very first prototype tests from around 2 years ago. Crude, but it worked.
