SolarBC provides incentives, training, municipal funding, and facilitates the installation of solar hot water systems throughout the province.
The announcement was made on the roof of the Canadian Rockies International Airport, where the City of Cranbrook installed a solar hot water system last fall. The Mayor stated,“Nationally, based on Environment Canada’s airport weather
stations, we rank 13th for sunshine, just behind Winnipeg and just ahead of Kamloops. Being recognized as the sunniest city in BC is important for tourism and for future economic development based on alternative
energy opportunities, and is one more reason to celebrate living in this great city.”
Please see events listed by our parent organization, the BC Sustainable Energy Association.
