It’s estimated that the BC District of Hudson's Hope will save around $74,000 a year, or $3 million over the next 30 years with their brand new municipal 1550-panel solar power system, the largest in the province. “In the 25 years that I’ve been on council, I’ve never been part of something so innovative and forward thinking — this one is really special,” said Mayor Gwen Johansson, adding it wouldn’t have been possible without a $1.35-million grant from the Strategic Priorities Fund and Federal Gas Tax Fund through the Union of BC Municipalities.
