Open doors for sustainable energy

Do you have a sustainable energy project you’re excited to share with others in the community?

The Alberta Green Energy Doors Open (GEDO) welcomes users, producers and advocates of decentralized energy – that’s energy produced close to where it is used – to open their doors the weekend of September 9-11, 2016, and show others their current energy innovations.

Becoming an event host is easy. You just need to be able to demonstrate a current project that is minimizing the environmental impacts of energy production and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Participating organizations and households will organize their own individual tours and events, allowing people to visit, see, touch and talk about projects in their own community. Visit Green Energy Doors Open 2016 at www.gedo.ca to learn more and to register.

As an Alberta GEDO partner, The City of Red Deer is promoting this province-wide event, which fits under The City’s Environmental Master Plan.

Previous open door event hosts in Red Deer and area include Kerry Wood Nature Centre, Energy Management Systems, Trimmed-Line Tree Services, and the Monolithic Dome in Lacombe County.

Examples of decentralized energy projects at The City of Red Deer include solar panel units and the Collicutt Centre’s Combined Heat and Power partnership with ATCO.
