The Burritts Rapids Renewable Energy Association (BRREA) is very pleased to announce that Bill Touzel will give a talk on “The Future of Small Hydro Projects in Ontario” at our Annual General Meeting on July 25. Bill is the Vice Chair of the Ontario Waterpower Association, and has worked in the Renewable Energy and Environmental Science field for over 30 years. He is involved in waterpower development projects in Canada and internationally, and is a co-owner/operator of a Hydro Low Generating Station. BRREA is excited to have someone with such a wealth of knowledge come to speak to us on this topic.

The talk and AGM is free and open to all BRREA members as well as the general public. The event will be held at the Burritts Rapids Community Hall, doors open at 7:30.

Following the talk, BRREA will hold its Annual General Meeting, which will provide members an overview of the Association’s activities over the past year, our strategic intent for this year, and a financial report. There will be a motion to change our year end (for grant application and HST reasons). We will also hold elections for open board positions. New members to the Association and the Board are always welcome.
