Gil Peñalosa has a simple rule: If you create a city that’s good for an 8 year old and good for an 80 year old, you will create a successful city for everyone. This is an 8-80 City. The Kamloops Chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA) is thrilled to be sponsoring Gil Peñalosa’s visit to Kamloops as part of the CommUnity Innovation Lab (CIL) February 3-5, 2015.
Deutsche Bank says that solar electricity in the US is on track to be as cheap or cheaper than average electricity-bill prices in all but three states by 2016—assuming that the federal government maintains the 30% solar investment tax credit it currently offers homeowners on installation and equipment costs.
But even if the credit is reduced to 10%, solar power would still achieve price parity with conventional electricity in some 36 states by 2016.
The Kamloops Chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association advocates locally for sustainable energy solutions and raises awareness about the need to transition away from fossil fuels. We organize a variety of events throughout the year, incorporating a broad range of perspectives and partnerships.
