Brighter Together: Support Solar at Westminster Ponds Centre

We are thrilled to share some exciting news with you – ReForest London is taking another big step towards sustainability and environmental stewardship. As part of our ongoing restoration and development of the Westminster Ponds Centre (WPC) - the area's FIRST AND ONLY Environment and Sustainability Centre - we are designing and implementing a net-metered rooftop solar project right here on site.

The journey so far...

We've already made incredible strides here at the WPC by converting the entire site to geothermal heating. The transition to solar energy is the next critical step in our journey towards making the Westminster Ponds Centre a net-zero site, where our energy consumption is balanced by the clean energy we generate on-site. This remarkable achievement will set an example for our community and inspire others to follow suit.

The road ahead...

The rooftop solar installation at Westminster Ponds Centre won't just power one building, it will power the entire site. That means that ReForest London, Thames Talbot Land Trust, London Environmental Network, Urban Roots London, Childreach, Nature Conservancy Canada, and the Thames Valley District School Board will all significantly reduce their carbon footprint.

To make this vision a reality, we need your support.

We have received a comprehensive proposal from a local firm, outlining the key tasks required to bring this project to life. 

Your generous support will not only contribute to the success of project but also play a crucial role in advancing our mission of creating a greener and more sustainable future for our community. As a gateway to environmental learning and innovation, the Westminster Ponds Centre will be an invaluable new resource and a primary driver of our community sustainability journey. 

Let's harness the power of the sun and make a difference together!
