This year’s Community Energy Network retreat takes place on Saturday, May 12, from 9:30 am – 3 pm, at Wintergreen Studios, 9780 Canoe Lake Rd, Township of South Frontenac (near Westport, ON).
As part of our activities across our service region, Sustainable Eastern Ontario supports and participates in an annual retreat at Wintergreen Studios, an innovative off-grid retreat facility located near Westport, ON. These retreats are always fascinating and informative, and the food (provided) alone is well worth the slightly confusing commute (directions to Wintergreen here – Google Maps may steer you wrong).
This year, the focus of the day will be Electric Vehicles. Meet EV owners, learn all about how these vehicles work and why they are good for planet, check out some of the most popular consumer models currently available, and more.
- Global significance of electric vehicles (EVs)
- How to buy an EV in Ontario (and why buy it now)
- Living with an EV — interact with a panel of owners
LUNCH: Conversation and Networking
- Ottawa Energy Management Study: Focus on EVs
- Dealer presentations
- Solar Share presentation
- Update from the Wintergreen Co-op
- Checking out the EVs: Check out a Volt, a Bolt, a Leaf, an e-Golf, among others
- Wrap up Q and A
