One Cowichan urging local governments to support solar initiative

One Cowichan says they’re off to a good start when it comes to getting buy-in from local governments for a solar power initiative.

The group was in front of the CVRD Board recently to ask for financial support for people who want to go solar, through incentives or low-cost loans.

They’re also encouraging the CVRD to consider a demonstration project involving one of their own buildings.

Matt Price of One Cowichan says that would set an important example.

Price says the long-term goal is to work with all the local governments, and other groups like Cowichan Carbon Busters, to make the area the “Solar Capital of BC”.
