Please join us next Tuesday, June 20, as Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson marks the official launch of the Creekside Solar Now renewable energy installation. The project features a total of 60 solar PV modules mounted on six boat sheds, with a generating capacity of 2.5 kilowatts per shed. The system will feed clean electricity back into the grid, and help to offset a portion of the energy used at the nearby Creekside Recreation Centre.

 

LAUNCH DETAILS

  • Where: on the eastern platform overlooking the boat sheds for Creekside Paddling Centre (in front of the Creekside Recreation Centre at 1 Athletes Way, adjacent to Science World)

  • When: Tuesday, June 20, 10:00–10:45 a.m. (rain or shine)

  • RSVP: by replying to this email by Monday, June 19  

ABOUT SOLAR NOW

By installing solar electricity systems on public buildings and in high-traffic areas, Solar Now aims to help British Columbians get a better sense of how the technology works–and how it could help meet the energy needs of homes and businesses across the province.

The Solar Now Creekside installation was made possible through a collaborative effort between the City of Vancouver, the North Growth Foundation and Clean Energy Canada, along with support from community sponsors the Great Climate Race, Bullfrog Power and the Community Energy Association.

Further details on Solar Now are available here: http://cleanenergycanada.org/about-solar-now/

 

We hope you will join us on Tuesday to mark the summer solstice and the launch of Solar Now Creekside!
