Port Nelson United Church in Burlington, Ontario has taken a leadership role to increase energy awareness and knowledge within the church and the surrounding community. The church formed a Renewable Energy Cooperative in 2013, and applied for a FIT contract with the Ontario Power Authority. The church now has 288 solar panels installed on the roof of the church, totaling over 50kW of power generating potential. The Cooperative now works to oversee their management and promote renewable energy in the community. David Arkell, President & CEO of 360 Energy currently serves as the co-op’s chair.
