Thompson Rivers University student finds inspiration at the Superheroes Exhibition
Have you ever wondered how to improve the present and the future in an incredible way? It sounds like a lot of work, but in fact it’s easier that you thought. As everyday citizens, we can really make a difference.
The BCSEA Kamloops Chapter has organized an inspiring exposition about the people in and around Kamloops, who have reduced their footprint substantially with the use of alternative energy.
Kamloops Sustainability Leaders Share Their Thoughts
When the team led by Kamloops resident and BCSEA local chapter volunteer James Gordon started working on the ‘Everyday Sustainable Energy Superheroes’ project, the expectation was that they would deliver a well-rounded exhibit of good sustainable deeds in the community. Pretty straightforward, right?
With Session 1 focusing on the political landscape of renewable energy and Session 2 looking into renewable energy success stories, Session 3 of Energy Connections 2017 will dive into the realm of energy conservation and efficiency. In simple terms, the concepts of conservation and efficiency can be summed up as: “doing more with less”.
First up on Energy Connections’ agenda will be a dialogue between representatives from different levels of government, First Nations and industry, on the current state of policies and programs surrounding sustainable energy in BC. The objective of this first session is give a clear understanding of the high-level framework of policies currently in place in BC.
‘Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater,’ BCSEA and Sierra Club BC told the BC utilities commission in a late September argument on FortisBC’s electricity net metering program. FortisBC wants approval to ban net metering customers from having generating equipment big enough to regularly generate an annual surplus of net energy. BCSEA and Sierra Club told the regulator that an annual net surplus is not a problem. In fact, they said, it is highly desirable, assuming the price is reasonable and the equipment is below the maximum 50 kW generator size.
