Jacob Nickerson, 3rd year engineering student, our guest author this week, wrote the following report after visiting the Manotick Microgrid.
With the ever-growing threat of climate change looming above, it is reassuring to see passionate scientists such as Dr. Hunter dedicated to proving the usefulness and viability of clean, green, renewable energy. His testimonial – and countless others like it – brings more and more people to understand and respond to the risk that carbon emissions and the current state of energy production pose on the future of our planet. With green energy production technology becoming more efficient and less expensive every year, projects like Dr. Hunter’s Net-Zero home are on their way to become the future of household energy production. A green future.
