I had a great meeting today with a good friend of mine, Derek Satnik. We picked each other's brains about how we can help to get our community on board with being a bit more environmentally conscious.
Derek's company, Mindscape Innovations, specializes in environmentally and technologically advanced homes and communities, and in realizing dreams from net zero and/or technically savvy “connected” homes, to private renewable energy projects for individuals, businesses, or communities. It's not that we don't think K-W cares about the environment. After all, this is the home of the blue bin and the 3 R's (Reduce-Reuse-Recycle) which have both been adopted across the continent. But, there's still more work to be done.
We want to start first by educating people. Here is a very interesting document that Derek's company has put together for people wanting to learn more about renewable energy. These Frequently Asked Questions address many misunderstandings that people may have.
I hope you find this information helpful. If you have further questions, I'm sure Derek would be happy to chat with you. His contact information is on the website.
