Ontario Solar Academy
Untill April 30, 2010
The Ontario Solar Academy has offered to donate time to visit community gardens in Toronto and do an analysis of your power needs, to help you get off-grid power for your community garden.
Many community gardens in the City of Toronto are off-grid. That means that even though they are in the middle of the city, they don't have access to electricity.
Have you ever wanted to have a moving water fountain in your garden area so that the birds and the pollinators can have a drink, while the mosquitoes are hindered from breeding.
Would you like to have some extra evening lights in and around your garden shed, especially during the hot summer evenings when people have waited for the garden to cool down, and it gets dark before they can put their equipment away.
Or perhaps you want to run some power tools to build a cold frame or trellis, or even just have hot water?
Businesses that use a Market Gazebo for the Farmers Market would also benefit from this
There are many reasons that community gardens would like to have some power.
- The ONTARIO SOLAR ACADEMY is offering to have their graduates to come and visit your community garden and help you do an assessment.
- With this assessment you will be able to have a more accurate cost estimate, when you seeking a grant for your garden power needs.
For more information about Solar Power you can contact David Hampson B.Sc. from the Solar Academy email@example.com
