SUN Co-operative Inc. Annual General Meeting – January 14, 2019
This report covers milestones from the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
A year full of changes. Most prominently, our founding president Arik Theijsmeijer, announced that he was moving to his dream home on Manitoulin Island summer of 2018. We are sad to see him go, he gave the co-op a lot of heart and led the movement for many years. It will be hard to fill his shoes. Arik agreed to stay on the board until this AGM, but to make the transition smoother, Vice-President and President roles were switched. We thank him for his numerous years of hard work, dedication to the cause, community engagement and friendship. We wish him the best in his future endeavours on his island paradise.

Did you know that?
Solar energy can be captured passively and actively. In passive solar systems, the key is to allow solar radiation to pass through a selective material, such as glass, without allowing it to re-radiate back out. This is termed thermal storage and it can be used for several applications, including space heating for the home, to produce domestic hot water, and for the heating of swimming pools and spas. A passive solar heating system harvests energy from the sun without the use of electrical or mechanical devices.Read more
