Nicole Risse, Executive Director of the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association starts the show with us to talk about Green Energy Doors Open. OSEA works to promote all forms of clean energy, including the cleanest of all.. the energy you don’t produce through efficiency and grid modernization. After introducing herself as the new ED for OSEA (former ED Kris Steven’s was a repeat guest) Nicole gives us a preview of the upcoming Green Energy Doors Open events happening all over Ontario, which you can learn more about here: http://greenenergydoorsopen.ca/
