This past September at the Union of BC Municipalities convention, the City of Kimberley received another award for the SunMine project.

This time, the award was presented by the Community Energy Association in the Public Sector Collaboration category. Mayor Don McCormick accepted the award on behalf of the City at UBCM from Environment Minister Mary Pollack.

McCormick thanked partners Columbia Basin Trust, BC Hydro, College of the Rockies, School District 6 and the Aq’am Community for their commitment to the project, noting that, “eighteen agreements with eight organizations were developed to realize B.C.’s first municipally owned utility-scale solar facility and to support local training opportunities. This project has received overwhelming support from the community.”

While the City received its award, the other partners had not had a chance to accept and that situation was rectified at city council this week.

Meghan Lohmann from the Community Energy Association presented the award to the other partners.

McCormick noted the string of awards and the positive publicity the SunMine generates for Kimberley.

“It’s the gift that keeps on giving,” he said.
