Learn about the power of the sun

This summer, the Comox Valley Regional District will host two open houses about solar power

TWO OPEN HOUSES will illustrate how solar power can work in buildings.

Come and see the power of the sun in action!

As part of the Comox Valley sustainability strategy implementation in the electoral areas, the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) contracted Terratek Energy Solutions to install solar photovoltaic energy (PV) systems on four different CVRD facilities.

There is now an opportunity for the public to see them at work in two of the locations.

The CVRD will host open houses at the Oyster River fire hall this Sunday and the Little River water services building Aug. 18.  Terratek Energy Solutions will be on site for brief tours and to answer questions.

Both open houses will run from noon to 1:30. The Oyster River fire hall is at 2241 Catherwood Rd. in Black Creek. The Comox Valley water services building is at 2490 Anderton Rd. in Little River.  Refreshments and prizes will be given out at both events.

Funding for these projects was provided through the Canada-BC-UBCM Gas Tax Fund.
