Pawley Legacy Fund to put solar panels on Seniors Centre

The Sunshine Coast Community Solar Association (SCCSA) is working with the Sechelt Seniors Activity Centre to add a 16-panel solar array to the building.

The project is being funded by donations to the Dr. James Pawley Legacy Fund.

Pawley, who died suddenly in March, was an integral part of the SCCSA board and advocate on climate change issues and the need to shift away from fossil fuels.

The solar association said in a release announcing the solar array project that the Pawley family has close and ongoing ties to the Sunshine Coast. “In recognition of Jim’s wish for a community solar array in Sechelt, both groups see this as a chance for those dreams to be realized in our community.”

The Sechelt Seniors Activity Centre will also install a monitor in its lobby so the public can see how the solar panels function in real time.

The two groups plan to work together to collect more donations to grow the solar array in the future.

Donations are accepted online at: or through the Sunshine Coast Credit Union.

The solar association will be discussing the project at its AGM at the Sechelt Seniors Activity Centre on Nov. 9 from 2 to 4 p.m.
