A school in the Nemiah Valley, two-and-a-half hours southwest of Williams Lake, B.C. is trying to reduce its diesel consumption by getting most of its energy from solar panels.

The solar energy project at Naghtaneqed Elem-Jr Secondary in the Cariboo cost $450,000 but the district hopes to have it paid off in seven to eight years, said Alex Telford, manager of facilities for School District 27.

“We’ve been discussing how to reduce and minimize energy consumption for quite a few years,” he said.

The district was paying about $78,000 a year for diesel fuel to power the school, which has 20 students of Chilcotin First Nations ancestry from kindergarten to Grade 10, but a capacity for up to 75.
