Partner: Tsleil-Waututh First Nation
The Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, located just outside of Vancouver, has taken clean energy production into their own hands. Case in point: the band’s daycare centre is now 90% solar-powered! In 2015, with support from Bullfrog Power, the band installed a 40-panel solar tracker to help meet the daycare centre’s electricity needs. The tracker, the second of its kind in Western Canada, is a device designed to shift position every 10 minutes to ensure optimal sun exposure for the solar panels it houses.
