Join us to power solar!


Emerging Leaders for Solar Energy is working in collaboration with the Great Climate Race to raise funds for OrcaLab, a world-renowned, research centre situated on a remote island off the BC coast, near Alert Bay, which has been researching orcas and other whales for more than four decades. In 2013, OrcaLab installed a solar system to reduce dependence on gas generators. They are now taking the project further to meet almost all their energy needs using renewable energy only. The OrcaLab solar project is being organized by ELSE and will serve as an educational opportunity for students involved in solar energy.
