Partner: Broadway Theatre

Even though Saskatchewan is Canada’s sunniest province—it has very few solar projects. A local Saskatoon theatre, its solar project and local community leader, Kirby Wirchenko are poised to change this. Wirchenko, the Executive Director of the Broadway Theatre, championed the idea to install an 88-panel solar array on the Theatre—an historic building originally built in World War II for veterans. At one point, the building was an “adult” movie theatre! Today, more than 50% of the building is now powered by renewables, demonstrating that solar is powerful, plentiful and within reach in Saskatchewan. Bullfrog provided financing for the project.
