SPEC's solar photovoltaic system has a new home. It has been relocated to the roof of the MEC store on West Broadway. A generous grant from Bullfrog Power is helping to pay for the move and expansion of the system. This means we will be able start offering public tours of the system again next year. We will be looking for volunteers to help with the move and set-up at the new location.
The SPEC array was the photovoltaic first grid-tie system installed in the city of Vancouver. Since its installation in 2005 hundreds have followed SPEC's lead and installed grid-tie renewable energy systems all over BC. All of these systems help in small ways to make our energy supply more sustainable. This system is another example of how SPEC is demonstrating practical sustainability solutions in the urban environment.
SPEC's Energy outreach and meetings are possible thanks to our donors and the support of BCHydro through the Community Champions Contest funding which SPEC won in 2013.
Thank you to our funders and supporters:
