British Columbia Sustainable Energy Association and COVID-19
The BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA) has been following recent developments regarding the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). As an organization that hosts events or participates in public meetings and other gatherings, involving employees, contractors, members, and volunteers, the BCSEA is mindful of our responsibilities to not contribute to the potential spread of Covid-19.
BCSEA filed its final argument today opposing BC Hydro’s application to the BC Utilities Commission to ban customers who propose “oversized generation” from joining the Net Metering program. For background, see:
Our first Okanagan Sustainable Energy Task Force Meeting is coming up and we are hoping to connect with our community in the central Okanagan region to discuss solutions from our fall forum, Powering Sustainable Energy. The task force will be strategizing how we can positively impact the transition to 100% renewables in the Okanagan by 2030. There are so many ways. We need numbers of people from all walks of life to take on this challenge. Offer some time to the change, educate ourselves and others by talking with the city councils and helping one another live the necessary change.
The Kootenay region of British Columbia, renowned for the many beautiful mountains and lakes, has long been environmentally conscious. This came to the forefront in 2016 when SunMine – Canada’s largest solar project and largest solar tracking system – opened on an old mining site near Kimberley earning nationwide attention.
Season's Greetings! We recently concluded our Annual General Meeting and heard about a lot of our success stories at the Provincial and Chapter levels. You can see the slide deck from the AGM on our website for more details, but the bottom line is that we have taken a lot of action in 2019 towards achieving our goal of 100% sustainably powered British Columbia.
