Park House Condominiums
Open House Reception and Refreshments
Wednesday, January 23, 2019 | 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Located in the Ramada Hotel next to Starbucks at 494 George Street | Prince George, BC
Prince George asked for it – and now it’s happening. The opportunity to live well downtown at Park House Condominiums. This collection of one- and two- bedroom condominium homes is being built next to City Hall at the edge of Connaught Hill Park. Park House is a proud sponsor of the 2019 Forum and is hosting an “Experience Park Side Living” Open House Reception for delegates on Wed. Jan. 23 from 5:30 p.m.-7:00 p.m. at the Park House Sales Centre in the Ramada Hotel next to Starbucks. Drop in for a drink and snack on your way to the evening’s activities at the Ramada.
There will be a draw for reception attendees. Anyone who visits the Park House Sales Centre during the reception can put their business card into a draw for an exciting take-way – a bottle of single malt scotch and a voucher for $5,000 in upgrades on the purchase of a Park House condominium. The $5,000 voucher is transferable so if a delegate has a colleague or family member who is considering owning at Park House, they could use this $5,000 in upgrades voucher.

Clean Energy BC: Renewable Energy 101
Wednesday, January 23, 2019 | 5:15 p.m. – 6:15 p.m
Room 208, Prince George Conference & Civic Centre | Prince George
This one hour course will explore the global and local trends in wind, solar, run-of-river hydro, geothermal and other technologies. They will investigate how they work, what are the challenges and opportunities, and where are the trends in innovation. Over the past decade, the costs to produce electricity from wind, solar, geothermal, marine, and run-of- river hydro have dropped significantly. A recent wind-power auction in Alberta demonstrated that wind is now the nation’s most cost-effective source of new electricity. While many renewable sources are variable-output energy sources, energy storage technologies are steadily improving and are already providing an effective back-stop in many jurisdictions. The costs of wind, solar and other renewable technologies have never been more affordable, as the price has dropped significantly over the past five years.
Extensive electrification enables BC to meet our climate targets and would require increasing BC’s production of renewable energy by as much as 50% to meet the 2030 GHG targets, and by as much as 100% to meet the 2050 carbon reduction targets. There has never been a better time for low-cost, private-sector clean energy power producers to ensure the province delivers on its climate change commitments.
There is no fee for registration. It will be open to all on a first-come, first-served basis.
