ENERGY REFERENCES, TIPS & SKILLS:  This page is about energy conservation (e.g. learning to live well while using much less of it), and also energy transition (e.g. to sustainable, low-carbon, and resilient energy sources).

* See Heartwood Folk School posts for our most recent sustainable energy classes!

The previous references below are grouped based on relevance to Pender Island, beginning with the our Pender Energy Research Report.  A handy Renewable Energy Comparison Chart is included in the report.  Caution: You should triple-check anything you read on the internet or are told by someone, and none of the products, businesses, or procedures below are endorsed or guaranteed by our non-profit society.  In other words, do your own follow-up research and be safe out there!
