Solar energy is an abundant renewable resource that can be used to meet many energy needs. Today’s solar thermal technology offers cost-effective solutions for hot water heating, and solar photovoltaic panels can even be used to meet household electricity demands. Solar power is a reliable, environmentally-friendly choice that could significantly reduce our city’s draw on the existing electricity grid, and the City of Campbell River is encouraging its use in the home and commercial buildings.
