Green Energy Doors Open


Mark your calendars now for Green Energy

Doors Open 2016! September 9, 10 & 11,

doors will be opened across Simcoe

County, Ontario and Canada to welcome the

public and showcase local green energy



100% Sustainable. 100% Achievable.


Green Energy Doors Open is a province-wide showcase of individual, community and commercial sustainable energy projects. Organized by the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association, the initiative aims to showcase advancements in the sector, demonstrating that Ontario is already on the path to building a 100% clean, sustainable energy system.

We invite YOU to get involved this year from September 9th through 11th - open the doors of your SMART home, your sustainable-energy business or your community project and invite the public to learn about what you are involved in. Green Energy Doors Open is a great opportunity to both educate the public and showcase projects. Visit the OSEA website for more about the history of GEDO and a complete listing of the site participating around the province.

Skills for the Green Economy partnered with OSEA to promote Green Energy Doors Open 2015, helping to showcase 7 amazing green energy projects and initiatives going on within the County of Simcoe! This year, we want to have an even greater impact and get more partners, hosts and attendees involved, but it's going to take some collaboration and community involvement!

Want to get involved?

Skills for the Green Economy is ending, but we want the sustainability/green community to keep going and growing! Consider organizing a community meeting once a month to meet people in your neigborhood with similar interests, bounce ideas off of each other on hwo to promote Green Energy Doors Open in your town or community! As the event comes closer, share information, pictures and articles about local projects and businesses that will be hosting events! If we all do a little to spread the word we can make Simcoe County a green champion!
