Help the Tsleil Waututh Nation Build a Large Solar Power Project!
The Tsleil-Waututh Nation are building a new administrative building and health centre in North Vancouver which will be completed in 2018. The project will include a grid-tied solar project that will reduce the energy demands of the buildings and put power onto the grid. It will be the second biggest solar installation in the Vancouver Lower Mainland Area once installed.
This project will serve as a powerful symbol of the decision between more fossil fuels or more renewable energy. The Tsleil-Waututh Nation is a leading voice against the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline project that would bring oil tankers to Burrard Inlet. This project is directly across from where the Tsleil-Waututh Nation solar project will demonstrate the potential of better alternatives.
The plans include an approximately 47,000 kwh a year solar installation. The total cost is approximately $125,000. With your help we hope to fully fund that project before June.
