Fairfield Gonzales Climate Action Meeting, October 10

October 14, 2019
BCSEA Victoria Chapter

On October 10th, the Victoria Chapter teamed up with the Fairfield Gonzales Community Association to host a meeting focused on local action and the City of Victoria’s Climate Leadership Plan.

Last year, the City of Victoria finalized its ambitious plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions and switch the community to 100% renewable energy use. The City is now working out the details of how to achieve this energy revolution. We think they will need everyone’s help to make it work.

2019 Federal Election Candidate Questionnaire

BCSEA Victoria Chapter

Thirty candidates are vying for the four local constituencies of:

Victoria,
Saanich-Gulf Islands,
Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke and
Cowichan-Malahat-Langford

If you want to support a candidate committed to climate action and sustainable energy, our questionnaire may help.

We focus on “green” spending and subsidies because tax dollar spending is one of the most powerful ways the federal government affects climate and energy policy. We also address support for municipal climate action planning and moving to a green economy.

Message from the Board Chair

Greetings to my fellow sustainable energy ... enthusiasts?  Evangelists? True believers? The BCSEA is a unique organization in the sustainable energy field.  We are not clean energy producers, nor are we building system experts.  While many of us are engineers or technical experts in our professional capacities, that's not we do within the BCSEA.

The Power of Sustainable Investing - Afterthoughts & Video

On March 20th, the BCSEA Kamloops Chapter hosted an event called The Power of Sustainable Investing, in partnership with Transition Kamloops, Thompson Rivers University Sustainability Office and the speaker, Tim Nash. The session was highly informative, generating interest, excitement, and engaging discussion.  The 35 minutes talk (PowerPoint slides attached below), was followed by an equally well-received half an hour of Q&A.  About half of the seventy attendees stayed for a break-out session.

Harbour Air to add zero-emmission electric plane; aims to convert whole fleet

A transition from seaplane to e-plane is set to begin.

Harbour Air is embarking on what is believed to be a world first, adding an electric plane to its fleet — a zero-emission aircraft powered by a 750-horsepower electric motor.

The company has 42 planes and 12 routes, and operates from centres such as Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle. It is North America’s largest seaplane airline, serving 500,000 passengers on 30,000 commercial flights every year.
