Photovoltaic panels on the roof of Pender Island Community School.

From the Times Colonist Newspaper (archived).

"More than 100 solar photovoltaic panels have been mounted on a Pender Island school roof as part of a plan to put panels on every suitable public building on the island. The Pender School Solar Roof Project is the brainchild of the Pender Solar Initiative 2020, a group formed with a goal of installing solar photovoltaic systems on the roofs of as many as seven public buildings by 2020. With the ability to generate 140 kilowatt hours of energy on a sunny day, the panels on the school have the potential to produce about 30,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually — with an estimated saving of about $3,000 on the school district's utility bill."
