The Green Challenge
About Me Brock University Senator Former Vice Chair of the BUSAC Environmental and Accessibility Committee Currently sitting on the City of Port Colborne’s Environmental Advisory Committee
My Idea – Why Solar Energy BUSU has the resources we need We can do everything on site Provide leadership to the University to follow suit Installing Solar Panels on the roof of the Student Alumni Center
Solar Energy – Isn’t That Expensive? Yes …BUT! Because of the Ontario FIT program, BUSU would actually profit roughly 20% above what the initial investment is. Government Guarenteed
What About Equipment? There are several local solar panel manufacturers that have the expertise and equipment to make this a reality Canary Solar Niagara Niagara Wind & Solar Niagara Solar Energy Niagara Windpower Inc. Investing in the local economy and having a competitive contract will give Brock Students the best quality for their money
Recap Use BUSU’s existing roof space to install a solar panel array to connect to the grid Make back investment +20% over 20 year period Investing in the local economy to better Niagara as a whole Become an example to Brock and others in the area that Green is Good to Go!
