On 29 May 2010, the City of Campbell River was designated a "Solar Community" by SolarBC in recognition of our community efforts supporting solar hot water usage. SolarBC is an organization supported by senior government to provide support for solar hot water installations.

To date, Campbell River has installed 12 solar powered crosswalks, two solar radar recorders, and solar hot water systems on four municipal facilities (the RCMP, Fire Hall #1, Sportsplex, and Simms Creek Washrooms). A Solar hot water system has also been installed on Timberline Secondary School by School District 72.

The City is one of the first 36 municipalities in BC to sign on to the Provincial Solar Hot Water Ready Regulation, which requires that all new single family homes and single family homes with suites be built solar ready. This regulation came into effect by the provincial government on June 21, 2011 and will apply to Campbell River's Building Bylaw beginning October 3, 2011. For more information on the regulation click here.

Campbell River is proud to have won the BC 2010 Solar Community of the Year Award in recognition of our efforts to promote solar.
