Bill and Joan CoakleyFounders of Electricity Safety and Conservation
Bill started the business in 1992, after retiring with 33 years working with Oakville Hydro. Bill was doing the electricity safety presentations for Oakville Hydro. The other utilities were very impressed with the way Bill presented to the students and asked him to travel to their schools. Bill and his wife Joan traveled for 10 years giving presentations to the schools throughout Ontario. We now have 6 presenters traveling across Ontario. We upgraded our presentation to include more conservation with the use a power point program to connect with the hands on program.
