Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company is directing their Green Futures Fund to supporting the local green energy sector through a newly-arranged partnership with Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative (OREC). Through the partnership, Beau’s will contribute funds to accelerate OREC’s solar rooftop projects.
Beau’s All Natural’s Greener Futures Project members will receive an immediate $20 return from Beau’s when they purchase a membership in OREC. Additionally, for every GFP member who invests $2,500 or more in OREC, Beau’s will contribute an additional $1,000 (in the form of a low-interest loan) to OREC to help build solar projects more quickly.
Over the next three years, Beau’s expects to contribute $100,000 to OREC, and hopes to generate $600,000 of OREC investments from its Greener Futures members. This total of $700,000 will finance a complete renewable energy project in Ottawa that will generate 250,000 kWh of solar energy per year, for 20 or more years.
Beau’s Greener Futures Project club memberships are $125 annually and entitle members to 10 limited edition barrel-aged Beau’s beers per year, plus a set of members-only glassware. Members can pick up their beer at the Vankleek Hill brewery or can have them delivered in Ottawa for a small fee through BYBO (www.bybo.ca).
