Net Metering: Free Webinar
Net Metering: A broad and detailed discussion on the benefits and limitations of Net Metering for your Faith Community
The Ontario Energy Board mandates all Local Distribution Companies in Ontario to provide their customers with a means to Net Meter their Hydro Consumption. Participants are allowed to supply self-generated electricity, from renewable energy sources, to Ontario’s electrical grid in exchange for credits toward their variable energy costs. One (1) credit is equal to one (1) kilowatt-hour (kWh). The value of the electricity supplied to the grid is subtracted from the value of electricity consumed from the grid and the result is the “net” difference.
A net metering system should seek to “net” all variable energy costs to zero; however, the involvement of photovoltaic allow owners the relative ease of choosing the extent of their participation and expanding their system in the future. A well designed Net Metered system can provide substantial benefits to the owner while also providing a significant contribution towards Ontario's Smart Grid Goal as initiated by the Minister of Energy in 2010.
Join Brian Nash, of Haliburton Solar and Wind, to learn about who’s who in the Electricity Market and how it can all come together to benefit you.
Brian Nash’s Bio:
In an effort to simplify my life, consolidate my interests, and lessen my environmental impact, my family and I moved to Haliburton where we designed and built a home entirely off grid. I believe in and exemplify sustainable, self-reliant, living. My passion and knowledge has led to the creation of Haliburton Solar and Wind. A company that offers full service battery based off grid and hybrid grid tied systems, using solar, wind and water power.
My team focused, and collaborative approach, helps establish sound partnerships and relationships within the communities that I work. Believing in the benefits that increased community resilience can provide, I look to serve my community by volunteering for community organizations that have a direct impact on the betterment of the local population.
