Kingston Featured in Sustainable Energy Commercials

Published on: 2011/09/15 - in Featured News

This week, the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA) is releasing two television ads that profile the benefits of an Ontario-made green energy economy.

The TV advertisements (one embedded below) will run from September 16th until October 4th and were shot on location in Kingston and the surrounding area, including Seeley’s Bay and Tweed. The ads feature renewable energy project owners, area residents, and Queen’s University students.

“The ads were produced in response to calls from our membership. They are proud of the positive aspects of the green energy economy in Ontario,” said Kristopher Stevens, OSEA’s Executive Director. “Ontarians agree with us, green energy is not dirty, green energy generating equipment is being built in Ontario and more jobs are being created in cities and rural areas.”

Stevens also stated, “The ads tell the stories that I hear every day about the excitement growing around this industry of the future.  People are becoming aware of how the Green Energy and Economy Act has kick-started job creation in Ontario. City roofs covered with solar panels, wind turbine parts manufactured in former automotive plants, farmers managing waste and generating energy with bio-digesters and new water power plants — all mean more jobs.”

The ads were created by Ancaster Pope Advertising Ltd., which specializes in working with not-for-profit organizations utilizing print, broadcast and new media formats.

The Ontario Sustainable Energy Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring and enabling the people of Ontario to improve the environment, the economy and their health by producing clean, sustainable energy in their homes, business and communities.
