Thank you to our May Green Drinks sponsors:
· The BC Sustainable Energy Association Okanagan is a local chapter of a provincial association working to support local communities in implementing alternative energy opportunities. In simple terms this means taking the confusion out of science, so people in the community can try alternative energy for the home, reduce their energy bills and try alternative transport. The BCSEA workshops are currently helping people try electric cars, try solar panels, consider alternative building materials and many more topics. http://www.bcsea.org/
· Integrated Power Systems is in its 18th year of operation in West Kelowna. We serve western Canada with off grid and grid tie systems, products, design, installation and maintenance. We do solar , wind, micro hydro, back-up generators and thermal hot water PV. IPS does large remote off grid resorts such as Beaver Lake Lodge to the many smaller cabins and homes throughout BC . We also do grid tie systems such as the Nakusp Arena (solar) and the Lower Similkameen Indian Band (Wind). With any system we design our first step is to always educate our customers about power consumption and power demands and what an off grid systems expectations are. We take the time to discuss with our customers their individual requirements so their system can be designed to meet their needs. We also offer energy audits so that customers can see exactly what they are using . http://www.ipwr.net/
