The Society for Environmental Conservation (SPEC)
invites you to join them on a tour to the Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) store on Broadway to learn about solar energy. On August 6th, a solar expert will animate the tour on the MEC rooftop parking lot.
These solar panels were installed in June by Bullfrog Power, Canada’s leading green energy provider, Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC), Canada’s leading outdoor retailer, and the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC), the oldest environmental non-profit in BC. The array generates about 7 kwh per day, and over 2,900 kwh annually. It has enough power to run a modest energy efficient household!
On the tour you will learn how to:
-Identify different types of solar panels
-Determine the costs and savings of Installing a solar panel
-Make your home/building solar ready
-Integrate solar energy Into a building
-Move away from fossil fuels and into renewables
