Following up on Heartwood’s November, 2014 energy classes (see here for more), there is now an updated Pender Energy Research Report. This is an introductory, practical comparison of solar and other renewable energy options for islanders. Note: A professional solar thermal install by March 31, 2015 could be eligible for the CRD incentive/rebate. Start by checking out the above report!
