The annual Green Energy Doors Open 2017 (GEDO 2017) is back.

The launch event, which is put on by the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA), took place on Friday at the Steam Whistle Brewery in Toronto.

This year, GEDO will showcase more than 150 tours events at more than 90 locations in Ontario – including 16 in Ottawa, and 55 across Alberta and British Columbia.

During the tours, GEDO will be showcasing green projects, including green buildings, renewables and other initiatives that support the low carbon economy. All the tours are free and open to the public and will run from September 22 to 24. GEDO says it was conceived to educate citizens, support the green energy market and assist in the understanding of what green energy is all about.

“Last year over 10,000 people participated. This year there are a range of new sites to visit, including ten at Ontario Universities and Colleges and over 50 green homes, we expect even more participants walking through the open doors during GEDO 2017,” said Janis Wilkinson, Interim Executive Director at OSEA, in a release.

Every year in early autumn, businesses, organizations, community cooperatives, First Nations groups, municipalities and homeowners open their doors and host events to promote the decentralised sustainable energy initiatives and technologies in their communities.
