Downtown West Multi-Unit Meeting - May 5, 2022

04 May 2022

Next Meeting

Tuesday, May 5th at 7:30pm
Meeting Room of Windward Co-op, at 34 Little Norway Cresent (1 block west and 1 south of Bathurst and Queen's Quay).

It looks to be an exciting meeting. Our featured speaker is Judy Lipp, the Executive Director of the Toronto Renewable Energy Co-operative. She will be discussing how condos and co-ops can best take advantage of the province's new Green Energy Act, which recently passed first reading in the Legislature. Among other things, the Act will double (i.e. to 83 cents/kwh) the prices paid for those who install solar electric panels on their rooftops.

Our own Brian MacLean will gave a presentation on the power of Wiki websites, showing how our diverse group could provide better access to all the information gleaned at our meetings and enable us to work more effectively together to promote conservation and green energy. With more and more people are attending our meetings, we need tools that might enable us to serve everyone much better. Having our own Wiki website would be especially helpful to those unable to attend our meetings on a regular basis.

Thirdly, we'll be discussing whether to change our name . Our name (i.e Downtown West Multi-Unit Solar Energy Project) has always been a long one, but now that we're drawing people from across the city, it is probably time to change it to something less geographically-specific. So put on your thinking caps, and bring your suggestions to our upcoming meeting on May 5th.

Since our last meeting, a few more MURBs have decided to go solar. We'll hear reports from these and others who have projects underway.

You can learn more by attending the May 5 meeting or by contacting either of the Project co-chairs below.
