Special program dedicated to solar energy on tomorrow’s edition of Earthgauge Radio
On Earthgauge Radio this week (7:00-8:00 AM on CKCU radio 93.1 FM in Ottawa or online at www.ckcufm.com), I’m presenting a special program on the coming solar power revolution.
Ever thought about installing solar panels on your roof or, if you don’t have a roof, what about investing in solar energy?
If the answer is yes to either of those questions or if you are just interested in learning more about solar power and its potential as a viable energy source of the future, you’re going to want to listen to the program tomorrow.
At the Ottawa Solar Fair this past weekend, I had the opportunity to speak with a number of well-informed people about the new Ontario Solar Rules, microFIT applications, investment options, joining the Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative and expected rates of return.
Did you know that through Ontario Power Authority’s Feed-In Tariff or FIT program you can sell the energy you generate through your solar panels at 54 cents per kilowatt hour? What does this mean exactly? Tune in tomorrow to find out!
Interviews with Janice Ashworth of Ecology Ottawa who will explain the details of the FIT program; Dick Bakker of the Ottawa Renewable Energy Cooperative who will tell us how you can invest in solar energy projects in Ottawa at a healthy rate of return; Graham Thomas of iSolara Solar Power on what is involved in installing solar panels on your roof and Councilor David Chernushenko, an early pioneer in the home solar movement who will give us the experience of a homeowner who has gone through the process.
Listen tomorrow at 7:00 AM on CKCU 93.1 FM, anytime online at ckcufm.com or download the podcast right here on earthgauge.ca.
Solar power to the people!
