MEC/SPEC Solar Project

Project we're supporting

Partner: Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC)

A unique partnership between Bullfrog Power, MEC and the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC) is helping preserve the legacy of Vancouver’s first ever grid-tied solar installation. The 3 kW project, constructed in 2005 on the SPEC energy demonstration centre, needed to be relocated when its building was scheduled to be torn down. MEC offered its Broadway store as a new home for the solar project, and in 2014 as a result of funding provided by Bullfrog, the panels were relocated. Thanks to the partnership, the project continues to educate Canadians about the benefits of solar energy to this day.
