I am now far enough into several other projects, (income tax, yard work, drywall patching) that I can start another one, so as to avoid finishing the others!! So I got out Dreamweaver and I’ve started plugging away. I’ve got Dreamweaver for dummies so I should have the site up and running in a few months!!

Of course if a community minded member of the public were to step forward and offer a bit of help I be a very happy little solar installer!

Solar Excitement

Wow I’ll be getting my books for school in a week, I’m actually very excited about going back to school! All of my friends have been very supportive and a few of them were quite funny about it. some of them even managed to offer sage advice.

I spoke to the people out west at Plant Drive and became a distributor for them, we should have the official howtogogreen veggie car running in a couple of weeks! No more electricity bills! No more gas bills! Some people would think I’m crazy to even suggest it!

The next step is to secure a Sunwise distributorship here in Toronto so that once my schooling is complete I shall have my own area to sell in. And I will be registering for my electrical apprenticeship.


Going to school to be green

I have decided to go back to school! At 43 that’s a big deal! But I’m going to go to Seneca College to learn how to be a PV installer! I’ve been solar powered since 1988, and there have been many times that my eagerness to have light overrode my fear of flaming tongues of electrical fire!I start on the tenth of May and I am very excited, this will be the perfect compliment to the online solar store to come, and I’ll be able to set up these systems fast and efficiently. Not to mention that I’ll be able to pull the numbers out of my head that make sales final!So I’ll try to keep up here as often as I can, and I’m looking forward to spending the summer (and fall, winter, spring, summer and fall!) surrounded by books. I changed out of the Grip category at IATSE into the Drivers for the next six months so I hope to get a bit of work and get a bit of school work done as well! I’ll try to keep you regularly posted! Willhttp://www
