Community invited to two local events

Attention: Agriculture Editor, Environment Editor, Energy Editor, Lifestyle Editor, News Editor ELMIRA, ONTARIO, GEOTHERMAL EARTH DAY CELEBRATION--(Marketwire - April 17, 2009) - This year's Earth Day celebrations in Waterloo Region will include two events organized by a local company and the Canadian leader in Geothermal for the Home.

NextEnergy, located in Elmira is holding a tree planting ceremony in Victoria Park, and a celebration showcasing Geothermal for the Home at their National Headquarters on Earth Day, April 22.

"Earth Day is a special day at NextEnergy, and this tree planting is a celebration of our commitment to the positive impact geothermal has on our environment" says NextEnergy President Randal Palach.

At its facility on Elmira's Earl Martin Drive, NextEnergy will host a workshop on Geothermal for the Home during a mid-day event that will be filled with activities and information for every visitor, including interactive and educational displays, government grant updates and giveaways.

The invitation extends to the entire region. It is a unique opportunity to learn more about the remarkable advantages of Geothermal for the Home. Also find out more about NextEnergy's uniquely energy-efficient head office and the carbon reduction impact of their products.

"Many people have asked us how our Geothermal systems use 70% less energy than traditional heating and cooling products. Homeowners who install a geothermal system take advantage of energy they already own, in their yard, to realize savings and have a positive impact on the environment" continues Randal Palach. "On Earth Day, our local friends and neighbours can visit us and find out first-hand."

Harold Albrecht, Member of Parliament for Kitchener Conestoga commented, "NextEnergy provides a clean, green alternative source of power. I'm grateful to them for providing this opportunity to learn more about renewable energy."
