The City of Selkirk flipped the switch to start harnessing the power of the sun Monday morning in what is being touted as the largest rooftop solar installation in the province.

“It was a beautiful sunny day this morning so we were pretty excited to launch it on a cloudless day and see the meter spin backward as it was,” said Justin Phillips, CEO of Sycamore Energy, the company that installed the panels.

The Selkirk Recreation Complex on Easton Drive in the city 34 kilometers north of Winnipeg was outfitted with 676 solar panels earlier this year and will generate over 225,000-kilowatt hours annually, helping to power the facility that houses a large ice rink and community center.
