Four Okanagan school districts will be receiving provincial dollars to help with green upgrades.
The province made $5M available to school districts around the province as part of its Carbon Neutral Capital Program.
Okanagan schools receiving grants include:
- Lavington Elementary - $75,000 for boilers
- Okanagan Falls Elementary - $20,000 for water heaters (SD53 will provide an additional $5,000)
- West Beach Elementary - $101,500 for boilers (SD67 will provide an additional $7,500)
- Eagle River Secondary - $235,000 for boilers
All five school districts included within the Okanagan region are also receiving an additional $9,765 for energy studies.
"These investments reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save energy costs," says Environment Minister, Terry Lake.
"More importantly, they demonstrate to children in communities throughout BC the types of actions that can be taken to reduce these emissions and show them examples of the clean energy and technologies that will power our future."
