Last Saturday, June 22, 2019, A+ Solar Solutions installed Salmon Arm’s first community-owned solar array on the east-facing roof of the First United Church.

A+ Solar Solutions installed 30 High-Efficiency 400 Wp LG NeON® 2 72-cell modules combined with state of the art Enphase IQ7+ micro-inverters, which will cover 38% of the First United Church’s average annual electricity consumption.

The project is a joined effort between the Shuswap Solar Energy Society and First United and made possible by generous donations and debentures of local supporters of solar energy.

The project will be called the ‘Hugh Tyson Community Solar Array’, honouring the memory of one of the Society’s Directors, who died a year ago.

C.B. Electric will be connecting the array to the grid this week, so First United can start harvesting their free solar energy early next week.
