Tsleil-Waututh First Nation Community Centre
Solar | Community project we're supporting
Partner: Tsleil-Waututh First Nation
The Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, located just outside of Vancouver, has taken clean energy production into their own hands. Case in point: the band’s daycare centre is now 90% solar-powered! In 2015, with support from Bullfrog Power, the band installed a 40-panel solar tracker to help meet the daycare centre’s electricity needs. The tracker, the second of its kind in Western Canada, is a device designed to shift position every 10 minutes to ensure optimal sun exposure for the solar panels it houses.
About our community projects
Activists and organizers across the country are working to transition their communities away from fossil fuels. We created our community-based green energy projects grant to provide critical funding for these local efforts.
All bullfrogpowered customers help fund these small-scale, community-led projects, including solar panels on schools and in Indigenous communities, education and training programs, and a cleantech accelerator.
