Making solar power possible.

of $24,000 goal

Creating a more sustainable campus with solar power.

A set of solar panels have been installed on the rooftop of the Science & Technology Building and two Langara students helped make the project a reality. The Langara Sustainability Club was established in October 2016 with a goal to raise awareness and take action to address environmental concerns at the College. Led by co-founders and environmental business students, Cameron Bower and Sterling Keful, the students’ first project was to raise funds towards the purchase and install solar panels for the new Science and Technology building.

The Sustainability Club helped to successfully fund the project through a variety of on-campus fundraising activities. A grant from Vancity and a gift from an individual donor helped make the project a reality.

The solar panels were installed in September 2018. The electricity generated from the 6kW system we are installing is estimated to be approximately 6,000 kWh per year. This is the equivalent to an EV Car travelling 32,000kms. Or 1,600 trips to school at an average of 20km distance.

“We are happy to see the solar panels now installed on the T Building. This is another step in our continuing drive to make our campus the most efficient possible. These panels will be a great way to determine our future potential for solar on campus and we are excited to share our findings with students and staff.” – Dwayne Doornbosch
