Local group seeks public submissions for new exhibition at Kamloops Art Gallery
The Kamloops Chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA) is excited to announce a new exhibition which will highlight and celebrate people who use sustainable energy resources and functions on a regular basis. Everyday Sustainable Energy Superheroes will take place January 14th to March 18th, 2017 at the free BMO Open Gallery of the Kamloops Art Gallery (KAG).
Thompson Rivers University (TRU) will soon showcase a transformative new “solar roadway” technology, so new that it may be the first in Canada. A team of faculty, staff and students has learned that the Solar Compass project will receive funding of $36,000 from the TRU Sustainability Grant Fund and the project will now go ahead. The new technology involves thick glass plates that can be walked or driven on and have an embedded photovoltaic layer.
Our system was installed and turned on in test mode on June 11, 2015, and has beeen producing power since.
As far as I can tell, the system has run without any interruptions except for a couple of hours when the electricians were on the roof installing the permanent fasteners. In the words any engineer likes to hear - 'It Just Works'.
