The AEE Canada East chapter presents a conversation about resiliency, renewable energy and net metering.
The cost for solar electricity technology has been rapidly decreasing; it now makes sense for building owners to install solar on their roofs to reduce operating costs and increase energy resiliency. CoEnergy Co-op offers expertise, project management, and investment capital to enable solar projects as well as other comprehensive sustainable energy services. Buildings with sunny roof space should consider a solar retrofit to keep energy costs low and predictable. Batteries can help peak shaving while other energy conservation measures can reduce operating costs. The Co-op's approach is to assess energy in a comprehensive way, allowing the fast payback items to enable deeper green measures.
Janice Ashworth has been with the Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-op and CoEnergy Co-op since 2011 where she is responsible for business development, project management, and financing. In her time as General Manager, Janice has been named as a 40 Under 40 business leader by the Ottawa Business Journal and was awarded the 2017 Solar Woman of Distinction by CanSIA. Janice sits on this Sustainability Committee of the Ottawa Board of Trade. She previously worked with community-owned wind energy and solar thermal in Nova Scotia. She also has a background in community organizing with Ecology Ottawa and the Ecology Action Centre. Janice has a Master's degree in Environmental Studies from Dalhousie University with a focus on community energy structures.
