Solar Energy 101
May 13, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In spring we look towards nature and the environment, and that always makes people think about greenhouse gas emissions and the search for clean, sustainable sources of energy. How was your heating bill last winter? Did your costs go up?
Solar power is clean and available nearly everywhere! It’s infinite. It promises to reduce our electric bills and alleviate the anxiety that’s associated with rising and fluctuating energy prices.
In 2016, Manitoba Hydro launched the Power Smart Solar Energy Program, which offers incentives and financial support for home and business owners to adopt solar power.
Are you curious? Al Friesen, President of Stellar Earth Energy, will be our guest speaker. He plans to speak about
– The basics of Solar Energy
– How energy choices affect our environment
– MB Hydro’s Solar Energy Program
– The future of Solar
So bring your questions and ask away!
