A local conservation group wants to make the Cowichan Valley the solar energy capital of British Columbia.
Parker Jefferson is a director with One Cowichan. He says people that want to make that dream a reality should sign a petition that will ask local governments to come up with solutions.
He says now is the right time to get residents to make the switch over to solar energy.
Jefferson says if you can’t sign the petition, you can also help the campaign by donating online at the One Cowichan website.
