Partner: Town of Black Diamond
The Town of Black Diamond, named for the coal mine that started it, is leaving behind its fossil fuel legacy with the creation of renewable energy projects such as a solar installation on the town’s hockey rink. The project was championed by Les Quinton, Parks and Rec Manager of Black Diamond (also known as the man with the mustache!). For Les, Black Diamond’s future is to become a leader in sustainability—with a plan to do so by 2035. In addition to working with Bullfrog to install the 10 kW solar installation on the local hockey arena, he’s putting up solar and wind projects throughout the community. These days, the arena has months when it’s 100% powered by solar energy!
