My significant other and and I strongly believe in saving the environment and reducing our dependance on non-sustainable and non-reliable energy sources. In an initiative to combat growing climate change, we solely believe that these changes must first take place in our own backyards. This includes everything from recycling and reducing our dependance on oil and gas which pollute and destroy our environments.
Up until 2012, Canadian governments provided incentives to homeowners to invest in economical and environmentally friendly energy infrastructure. These grants or incentives are no longer available in the province in which we reside. As a result, this discourages homeowners to invest in environmentally safe energy systems (e.g. solar, wind or geothermal) that can reduce our carbon footprints.
The goal of this fundraiser to raise enough funds to finance a geothermal energy system in our home. With the lack of support from our governments, it is difficult for a homeowner like us from taking on investments that can combat growing climate change.
