Sunday, November 24, 2 pm. Solar PV Net Metering Systems Brockville Public Library23 Buell St., Brockville
Bob and Chris Stesky have installed a grid-tied net-metered solar PV system with battery backup and will discuss it at the next meeting of Transition Brockville. They will describe their system in detail, explain how the net-metering contract works, and discuss their reasons for setting the system up.
Their system combines the emergency-handling capabilities of a completely off-grid system at one extreme and some of the economic benefits of a microFIT contract at the other. Photos will illustrate the construction process and the various types of equipment used. Bob will get into some of the technicalities of the system they chose. Transition Brockville

An innovative approach to engaging Cornwall residents  The City of Cornwall invites residents to weigh in on 2014 Budget.  In an effort to engage Cornwallites in the City budget, the City of Cornwall is inviting residents to share their thoughts on how they would like to see their property tax dollars invested in community services. The City has launched an interactive online budget survey which allows residents to build their own budget and show City officials how they would spend their tax dollars. Residents can also provide comments on various City services. For more information and to find the on line survey, please click here:  City of Cornwall.

SOUPer SQUASH Event at the Agape Centre:  Squash, corn,  potatoes, garlic, onions,  red pepper,  pots and spoons,  blenders,  bowls,  choppers,  stirrers and musicians were all in attendance. And a great time was had by all! A bountiful quantity of Squash Soup was prepared by members of the Transition Cornwall + to donate for the clients of the Agape Centre. It was a great summer for butternut squash plants and  it was time to share the harvest. This was a first initiative of its kind for Transition Cornwall +, such a super way to share with the greater community.
