Free Solar Power Open Houses

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

The CVRD will be hosting open houses at the Oyster River fire hall on Sunday July 21 and the Little River water services building on Sunday August 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 Road, Black Creek, and the Comox Valley water services building is at 2490 Anderton Road, 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.

The Comox Valley Regional District is a federation of three electoral areas and three municipalities providing sustainable services for residents and visitors to the area. The members of the regional district work collaboratively on services for the benefit of the diverse urban and rural areas of the Comox Valley.
