Castlegar working on a City Hall Solar Project

The City of Castlegar is working on a project to put solar panels on top of City Hall.

Mayor Bruno Tassone says they're hoping for a grant from the CBT's Energy Sustainability Grant Fund.

Council is going to be looking for 65-thousand dollars from the CBT.

They're getting 25 thousand dollars from Solar Now, and the city's contribution on the 100-thousand dollar project would be 11-thousand dollars.

The goal would be energy savings down the line with the solar subsidizing electrical costs.
