Hon. Grant Mitchell: Honourable senators, I am rising today to talk about an inspiring environmental organization in Alberta. The founders of Dandelion Renewables realize that the change in mentality around energy consumption and environmental protection happens one person at a time, one family at a time, one business at a time.
With that in mind, Dandelion Renewables designs and installs sustainable energy systems tailored to its clients' needs: rooftop solar panels, wind energy, off-grid projects, electrical energy audits and consultation. Those are just some of the reasons this organization is a leader in community movements in support of clean energy and energy efficiency in Alberta.
Dandelion Renewables is committed to providing Albertans with alternative energy sources. Its success lies in the fact that it offers more than just green solutions. Its mission is to offer solutions that are efficient, use cutting-edge technologies and strategies and produce a 50 per cent return on investment in energy savings.
In addition to providing the public with information on fluctuating energy costs and new provincial policies, Dandelion Renewables shares information on other active organizations, including the Solar Energy Society of Alberta and Alberta's Solar PV Equipment Pilot Program.
It is very important to recognize organizations like Dandelion Renewables for what they are: environmental innovators that will be at the heart of the alternative energy industry of the future.
They are excellent drivers of economic diversification in Alberta, and their focus on environmental science and awareness should be applauded. Dandelion Renewables is yet another reason why I am proud to be an Albertan, and I am happy to highlight its success here today.
