Have a project that needs funding? Come to a meeting and share your idea or story.
Some innovative ideas relating to solar generation are:
- River science monitoring stations (air temperature, water temperature, salinity, time, date, daylight hrs, and other observations).
- Solar/Electrical boat motor concepts
- In-house concrete heating concepts
- Recreational lake water purifiers
- Carbon capture devices
- Merging solar panels with building materials to create architectural concepts

Government of Canada
- Canada’s New Accellerated Capital Cost Allowence (Helps Businesses Go Solar)
- “Full Expensing for Clean Energy Equipment” enables renewable energy and energy conservation assets (such as solar energy, battery storage and electric vehicle charging infrastructure) to be depreciated in full in the year that they are brought in service. Accelerating depreciation in this way, defers taxable income to later years. As a result, the business case and access to finance is improved for investments in technologies that produce clean energy or that displace fossil fuels.
