Solar panels are one of the alternative energy solutions discussed in the film 'Deep Green.'

EcoSociety and EcoSave present ‘Deep Green’ film at Nelson Civic Theatre

The thought-provoking film 'Deep Green' will screen on Wednesday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Nelson Civic Theatre.

West Kootenay EcoSociety and Nelson Hydro’s EcoSave program for a screening of the thought-provoking film Deep Green on Wednesday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Nelson Civic Theatre.

In honour of Earth Day, tickets will only be $5.

The film highlights innovative solutions to our growing climate and energy crises, and provides specific concrete steps you can take to join the green energy revolution.

One of these novel solutions is Nelson Hydro’s EcoSave program which has helped hundreds of homeowners make energy efficiency upgrades through energy assessments, rebates and access to on-bill financing. Representatives of the EcoSave program will be on hand at the film with prizes and information on the new rebates available for energy upgrades plus some exciting ideas involving district energy and solar community gardens.

Following the movie there will be a panel discussion on the topic of creating a green energy economy here in the Kootenays.
