Prince George Tests Solar Pilot Project

It’s a pilot project in Prince George, B.C. and it could pave the way for a new wave of green technology which would make use of an otherwise useless space and help power the city if it can be expanded. For now, they are just testing out a small 20-square-metre area of the City Hall parking lot with panels installed right over the pavement.



There is a lot of paved ground in city centres and it is mostly wasted space except when cars are parked there. If there was a way to utilize it for other purposes like providing green energy for charging stations or the cities power grid it could be very useful for the municipality and a great opportunity for a solar company.


If the pilot project performs properly then perhaps there will be more forthcoming and if Prince George sees success with it a new adoptive green technology could be born.
