The amazing Cody and Megan Kelso’s recent fund-raiser was for energy efficiency measures for the Gibsons Heritage Playhouse. They spent 4 days (and nights) in a scissor lift, and in spite of poor weather, they completed their mission! Collaborating with the Playhouse board on energy upgrades continues, which will not only save the Playhouse money but significantly reduce their Greenhouse Gas emissions. Funds are being sought to finish the needed work, which include heat pumps, led lighting and window upgrades. Thanks to the SC Credit Union, the Rotary Club and the Community Forest for generous donations in helping with this.
Did you know that we have a solar trailer available to take out to some events? Thanks to Gerry Pageau, Gord Bishop and the summer students for their hard work on this!
We hired two university students this past summer through the Canada Employment program, who continued on with energy audits for the SCRD and the Town of Gibsons and who put in many hours with out ongoing solar and energy upgrades project at the SPCA (on Solar Road!).
