Solar Power in the 21st Century: Roads, Planes, Buildings and Fields

Dr. Michael Mehta, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Thompson Rivers University

Dr. Mehta will review the current state of solar power, discuss various applications, and profile Canada’s first solar road which is being built here in Kamloops on the campus of TRU. In British Columbia we have very good solar conditions, and in the interior our 2000 hours per year of sunlight surpass solar powerhouse nations, like Germany, by 25%. Many people are surprised to learn that even coastal communities like Vancouver and Vancouver Island do indeed work well with solar. Solar power is changing the world of energy production, and people and governments are beginning to take notice.

FREE ENTRY! Everyone is invited to attend. Wheelchair accessible. The BIG Little Science Centre is a not-for-profit, registered charity, dedicated to creating a passion for science.
