There will be solar panels on the roof of 140 Wineva  

Our application for a FIT (Feed in Tariff) contract, from the province of Ontario, has been successful! The system will incorporate 165 solar photo voltaic panels on the south rooftop and will generate 41 kWh of electricity at maximum performance. It will be the largest rooftop solar pv system based at a faith community in the GTA. Over a typical year it will provide the amount of electricity typically bconsumed by 3-4 homes in the neighbourhood.

Solar Energy for Beach Co-operative

The BUC Co-op is  a not-for-profit renewable energy co-op, incorporated for the purpose of generating and selling renewable energy in order to support Beach United Church ministries.  It will offer no equity or investment shares.  All of its revenue earned through the “Feed in Tariff” Ontario Power Authority contract, less the money needed to operate effectively, will be transferred to Beach United Church.

What is required of a member of the co-op?

Co-op members must own property in the municipality of Toronto, pay a membership fee of $10, and be willing to attend one annual meeting each year to examine reports from the board of directors regarding system performance and finances, approve (or not) recommended policies and procedures for the co-op, and elect the next term’s board of directors.
