Ottawa gets green with solar energy project

Eight municipal buildings in Ottawa now equipped with solar panels.

Sounds so inspiring! If Ottawa municipal buildings are equipped I hope they will spread the tendency through other gov buildings and other provinces! I am happy we see this trend support in government.
Maybe it will positively affect our taxes too ;)

I wonder how much of this is about going Green vs about out of control op budgets thanks to Ontario's rising hydro rates. There was a piece released by the G&M that highlighted that a large number of Municipalities didn't budget huge op budget increases that correlate to the 20-30% hike in hydro rates that the province approved leading the cancelled projects and other slashes to services.

Maybe this is why the TTC never gets the funding they need /s
