Solar In Canada — Yes, Please! (Infographic)

March 10th, 2013 by  

Here’s a great infographic a friend passed along. It’s focused on solar power in Canada, but it actually has a lot in it that’s relevant elsewhere. The infographic comes from Solar Income Fund (as you can see on the bottom). Have a look:

Check out our new 93-page EV report, based on over 2,000 surveys collected from EV drivers in 49 of 50 US states, 26 European countries, and 9 Canadian provinces.

    Brilliant infographic Little Web Giants people. More power to you and your research and design team.

    What to do with the long format? Where else but power line poles!!

    As someone who used to work in the Ontario Solar Industry, this type of effective showcasing of information is fantastic. Guaranteed I’ll get this spinning around throughout the GTA. As always, great work Zachary.

    • Thanks! 😀 Yes, one of the better infographics I’ve seen.

  • As a proud canadian this would be fantastic if we invested in more solar! Great infographic. I also read CleanTechnica daily just wanted to thank you for the great work! 🙂

    • Thanks a bunch! Would be great to see more of Canada follow Ottawa’s lead (and Germany’s, etc.) Of course, would be great to see that happen in more of the US as well. 😀

    Hey Zachary,
    What a beautiful infographic this is. Yes, it needs to be
    out there for many more to see. (That’s our job!) Thanks for bringing this to
    us – AND – re: yesterday’s apologies…no need. Most of the stories you publish
    are ‘good news’. This is something I don’t hear enough of, and I need my daily
    fix of optimism. My vote goes to ‘keep doing what you’re doing’. The daily roundup posts seem to be an efficient way to corral the abundance.
    I just have a big THANK YOU. 😀

    • Thanks a bunch.

      Yes, unfortunately, drama pulls us in, and the media capitalizes on that to an unbalanced degree. We’re doing our best to try to balance that out. 😀

  • Wow!

    This needs to be printed up and put on buses, walls, bus stops, university information pillars, office windows, etc.. The long physical format though leaves me scratching my head as how to do it…
