Home Scale Solar Systems
Come learn about small scale, stand alone solar power systems, as well as grid tied solar and how the sun can be harvested to create power in your home! Mike will talk about the benefits and drawbacks of grid tied versus stand alone solar systems, all while using the Compost Education Centre's solar panels (which power the aquaponics water pump!) as a demonstration.

The Compost Education Centre is located on unceded and occupied Indigenous territories, specifically the land of the Lekwungen speaking people—the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. These nations are two of many, made up of individuals who have lived within the porous boundaries of what is considered Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwa'wakw Territory (Vancouver Island) since time immemorial. At the CEC we seek to respect, honour and continually grow our own understandings of Indigenous rights and history, and to fulfill our responsibilities as settlers, who live and work directly with the land and its complex, vital ecologies and our diverse, evolving communities.
