Green Energy Ontario's President and CEO is Todd Harris.
Todd's initiation into environmental issues started nearly 10 years ago. Todd was involved in the community based opposition to the construction of a landfill site (Site 41) over the Alliston Aquifer, north of Barrie, where it has been confirmed that the ground water there is some of the purest water on the planet.
Since being involved in this issue Todd has been increasingly aware of the need to protect the environment, reduce waste, and save energy. As part of Todd's commitment to green energy sustainability and savings, Todd founded the company, Green Energy Ontario.
Todd is a member of the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association, the Toronto Centre for Social Innovation, the Ontario Clean Air Alliance and Ontario Citizens and the Coalition for Clean Affordable Energy.
Todd has a BA in Economics and Philosophy from the University of Toronto, a MA in Political Science from York University, and holds a graduate law degree (LL.M) from Osgoode Hall Law School (2017).
All initial contacts and sales will be made through Todd Harris.
