Tom Gross, Arctic Energy Alliance’s new South Slave Regional Energy Project Coordinator, participated in the "Fix-It Fair" event that was organized by Ecology North on Sunday, October 26th in Hay River.

Several people attended and tables were set up with various activities such as zipper and clothing repair, cross country ski and snowshoe maintenance and repair, toy repair and jewelry repair.

Arctic Energy Alliance was set up promoting its new Hay River office, their rebate programs, and biomass heating. We also provided information on some basic heating system maintenance, what to expect to get out of annual service work done, and some checklists of items that a homeowner can do themselves. Information was also provided on “The House as a system” which people found to be interesting.

Tom thought this was a great idea and hopes it becomes an annual event.
