In August, Bullfrog Power joined the Skidegate Band Council in Haida Gwaii, B.C. to celebrate the launch of the Haida Heritage Centre's 100 kW solar project. Through Bullfrog, you provided support for the solar array, which launched in time for the Haida Heritage Centre’s ninth anniversary and will reduce the Centre's reliance on diesel for its electricity. 

“This solar project will serve as a reminder that there are local solutions we can act on today to move toward a clean energy future,” says Billy Yovanovich, who is the Chief Skidegate Band Councillor. Read the full story as well as a CBC news article on the project.
