Discover how wind power is bringing exciting changes to homes and businesses in Toronto and throughout Ontario.

Join Paul Gipe for a special one-hour presentation and discussion in this third session of a series of lectures hosted by the Community Bicycle Network (CBN)

Paul Gipe has worked with wind energy since 1976. His experience with the technology runs the gamut from measuring wind resources to installing residential wind turbines. He’s currently the acting executive director of the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association.

Gipe has sought to popularize the use of wind energy worldwide. In 1998 the World Renewable Energy Congress designated Gipe a “pioneer in renewable energy,” one of the group’s highest honours.

Paul Gipe has written extensively about wind energy for both the popular and trade press. He has lectured widely in Europe, North America and the South Pacific on wind energy and how to minimise its impact on the environment and the communities of which it is a part.

His sixth and most recent book, Wind Power For Home, Farm And Business will be available at this CBN Speaker Series session – a unique opportunity to have this concise book autographed by an internationally recognized expert in the field.

This 45-minute presentation will be followed by a question, answer and discussion period with the audience.
