University of Toronto Solar Charging Station
SOCEC is currently in negotiations with the University of Toronto's sustainability officer and administration to set up a solar charging station for its St. George Campus. It will be the first of its kind in Toronto, and will provide renewable energy to charge mobile devices for the public who use that area of the campus.
Shoresh Community Garden Solar Panel
Located in Vaughan, Toronto, the Shoresh Community Garden inspires and empowers their community to take care of the earth by connecting people, land, and Jewish tradition. Many garden members wanted to be able to continue gardening and harvesting later in to the evening, but had no lighting to do so. Sustainability Ontario Community Energy Co-Op secured a grant for the garden to have solar panels and battery storage installed and connecting to a lighting system, allowing the garden to be more inclusive and productive for all.
