Presentation: The Business Case for Solar at Your Place of Worship
October 6, 2015
Description: Does your faith group want to help build a clean energy economy for your children and grandchildren? Is your faith-based organization looking for an ethical, low carbon, and socially responsible return on investment? This webinar described how your community can generate energy from the sun, including roof-top solar success stories and cooperative bonds and shares. The webinar explored both the ethical and the business case for engaging in Ontario’s Feed in Tariff program to generate electricity from the sun. The PowerPoint presentation from this webinar is available for download.
