Details

We would really like for you to sponsor the Eco-Solar Tours. Here are the points of participation.

  • The Ecosolar.ca web site is where all sponsors will be displayed. Sponsor displays are on the left of each web page and then again on each site sheet.

  • We prepare a write-up for each sponsor on our sponsor's page to highlight the activities that they bring to the energy efficient building industry in Edmonton.

  • At each site on the tour we prepare a binder with the site sheets for the entire tour. The site sheets all display our sponsors on the left of each page.

  • All of our efforts at promotion are aimed at bringing people to our web site so that they can see the content of the tour and see the sponsors. Some of these additional promotions include:

    • Association promotions through local green building associations and a number of other alternative energy newsletters and web sites.

    • Editorial promotion through articles to the local papers. We will do press releases to support the overall tour with articles and write-ups.

    • Strathcona Farmer's Market. We have an information booth scheduled for the week before the tour. This was quite successful last year. Site sheets and posters featuring sponsors will be on display.
