Calvert Island Field Station

After 17 years of full-time dependency on diesel-fueled gensets, this off-grid site made a strategic investment in renewable energy integration.

False Bay School - Lasqueti Island

Lasqueti Island is a unique Gulf Island community that is independent from the BC Hydro grid. Prior to this solar project, community facilities including False Bay School, the telecommunications tower, and the volunteer fire department relied exclusively on diesel generators and a small inverter and storage system.

Klemtu School Solar Initiative

Klemtu, located on Swindle Island in the the Great Bear Rainforest, is a community that envisioned a solar initiative that would supplement the existing micro-grid sourced by diesel generators and a hydroelectric facility.

Hakai Institute

Hakai’s remote monitoring stations give the Tula Foundation’s science network unprecedented range and reliability.

Village of Alert Bay Solar Initiative

With funding provided by the Union of BC Municipalities, the village selected five municipal buildings for the installation of solar arrays.

Bella Coola Heli Sports

“Where can we fly today?” Hakai’s remote camera systems give tour operators the answer. Our ruggedized, solar-powered cameras provide situational awareness for safe and cost-effective transport of skiers within your tenure.
