Over 30 local businesses and organizations have signed on to support the transition to 100 per cent renewable energy in their West Kootenay communities, with almost one third being Rossland-based businesses.
"We've signed on to support the transition to 100 per cent renewable energy in Rossland," said Tyler Merringer, owner of Revolution Cycles. "Getting people out of gas-guzzling cars and onto public transportation or bikes to get around Rossland and our neighbouring communities, like Warfield and Trail, means less pollution, healthier people, and a more fun and social culture of getting to work and doing errands."
Seven crew members from Maritime Electric are en route to Turks and Caicos and will spend the next two to three weeks helping with restoration efforts following Hurricane Irma.
Maritime Electric is sending technicians and a supervisor as part of a relief effort by their parent company, Fortis Inc., which brought together crews from across the country in Toronto over the past couple days.
Homeowner Tom Grimmer surveys the construction workers assembling his unique home on a lot overlooking the Comox Glacier on Vancouver Island.
His four-bedroom, 2,600-square-foot passive house is Squamish-designed and constructed by sister companies Factor Building Panels and British Columbia Timberframe.
"You have a place that is designed in such a way you don't need to add any energy to it," Grimmer said. "It is an idea that has always been attractive to me… We need more positive innovation like this."
B.C. Local News
Owners of a popular Cawston garlic farm hope that neighbours will follow suit and invest in solar power and the government will step in and help grow the renewable market.
Morris Holmes and Yvonne Kosugi, owner of Farmersdotter Organics, put up a 70-panel solar array on their farm earlier this spring.
"We thought it was the right thing to do," Holmes said. "One of our mottos is vote with your wallet. As a consumer of resources we have a considerable footprint. We want to mitigate that footprint and give back."

An incredibly tight timeline isn't the only thing hamstringing the B.C. Utilities Commission from evaluating the need for — and the economic viability of — the $8.8 billion Site C hydroelectric dam.
The commission is also constrained by the Clean Energy Act.
The BCUC has until Sept. 20 to produce a preliminary report and until Nov. 1 to produce final recommendations on whether the project should be completed, halted or mothballed.
A group of Anmore residents is continuing to press its case against B.C. Hydro's plan to provide more power with a new 230 kilovolt (kF) line between Coquitlam and Vancouver, citing health concerns and property impacts.
A petition with 353 signatures protesting the plan and calling for existing and new infrastructure to be placed underground, has been presented to the B.C. Utilities Commission.
B.C. Hydro maintains that placing the new lines underground would be technically challenging and expensive, and work is planned for a right-of-way in Anmore that Hydro has used for years.
The Abbotsford News
The City of Abbotsford will install 10 electric vehicle charging sites at its facilities over the next five years, after council recently gave the go-ahead to the $250,000 plan.
A trio of recreation facilities are first up for the new stations, which are hoped to encourage the use of electric vehicles in Abbotsford and meet future demand.
