Launch of Prescott-Russell’s 1st Community-Owned Solar Project! w/ Free Tours & BBQ

BBQ starts at 11am

Grab a burger or a hot dog while you explore the project site and chat with our experts. While supplies last.

When: Sunday, Oct. 1st, from 10am to 2pm
Where: Du Moulin Street, Alfred, ON (directions)
Cost: Free!  RSVP so we can provide enough lunch.

Official Ceremony

Project partners, local councillors and politicians will officially launch the project at noon. Join the ceremony to learn more about how this project came together.

Family Friendly

Renewable energy themed pictures will be available for kids to colour in.

Community Involvement

The entire project is financed by hundreds of residents of Eastern Ontario who invested as little as $2,500. Generated electricity is sold to the grid and profits are returned to investors. Learn more.

Green Energy Doors Open

This tour is offered as part of the Ottawa Green Energy Doors Open weekend of celebrations. A dozen individuals and businesses are showcasing their green technologies. Check out our booth the day before at the Energy Showcase at Lansdowne Park.
