Solar Colwood an affordable success

It was with shock and dismay that I read a letter in a local publication by Ernie Robertson, a former Colwood council member

It was with shock and dismay that I read a letter in a local publication by Ernie Robertson, a former Colwood council member, which was riddled with falsehoods.

He criticizes the previous administration and he was part of that council.

The actual fact of the matter is that the Solar Colwood program is proving to be a success at a good price.

The program is subject to audits from Natural Resources Canada with all costs carefully tracked. Colwood taxpayers will only contribute some $31,000 over the three-year program which represents 0.3 per cent of the total budget for the plan.

Homeowners have received some $155,000 in federal grant money, making the program one of the most successful in this area.
