Solar Power & Energy Storage

Hello Lasqueti Community!

I represent a local BC engineering firm that is working on a project designing and building a marine-based solar power generation and energy storage catamaran for boat-access-only communities.

We're at a very important point in our design where feedback from off-grid residents and forward thinkers such as yourselves will be key to our ensuring a world class product with the right features and design elements.

In exchange for your input, we would be happy to offer you a free one week cruise aboard our first yacht, as well as the opportunity to trial our revolutionary new system to power up to 5 homes!

Anyone interested in learning more about our project can email ted [at] unitechengineering [dot] ca for more information, or leave a comment in the forum for further discussion.

We look forward to working with the Lasqueti Island community on this exciting new project in renewable energy and sustainable development!

Kind regards,
