The Gold Bridge Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Renewable Energy Initiative is an innovative project constructed in late 2015 in the small community of Gold Bridge in Electoral Area A of the Squamish Lillooet Regional District. This is part of a foray into community-owned sustainable energy, seeded by the province’s new Community Energy Leadership Program (CELP), and brought to fruition using federal Gas Tax Funds allocated to the SLRD.
The project saw the installation of three small-scale, grid-tied PV arrays that enable the SLRD to harness the clean, renewable energy of the sun to supply electricity to three of its service areas. The Haylmore Heritage Site was chosen as one of the locations. More information can be found on the Squamish Lillooet Regional District Website.
