An article about the, “Shuswap Solar Energy Society” can be found in the November edition of the, “North Shuswap Kicker” newspaper. The article starts on page 26 and can be found online at the following link: https://bit.ly/36oztUA . It was written by Laurie Jones after she interviewed SSES President Warren Bell
The article contains information about why SSES was formed, its mission, the “Hugh Tyson Memorial Community Solar Array” other society interests.
The article mentioned that the SSES was in partnership with the Salmon Arm Art Gallery to build a community solar array. This is not correct. What is happening is that the city of Salmon Arm is doing solar feasibility studies on a number of city buildings including the Art Gallery to find out which building has the best potential for a solar array. The SSES did make a presentation to the city environmental committee on the benefits of solar but, other than that, is not involved in any other way.
