The SolarLiving Show looks to provide expert advice and support for businesses that are considering the possibility of integrating clean energy systems into their facilities and operations. Recently, Canadian Government Grants for Research and Development have led to new developments by the University of Toronto in solar cell technologies. These breakthroughs promise to improve efficiencies and reduce costs of solar powered energy systems. As energy prices in Southern Ontario continue to rise, alternative energy systems are gaining credibility as a viable solution to cut costs and indirect carbon emissions. The SolarLiving Show will provide an opportunity for businesses to discuss the implementation measures for a viable alternative energy system that would improve a business’ environmental performance and bottom line.
When: September 6-7, 2012
Where: Metro Toronto Convention Centre – 255 Front St. W. Toronto, ON
