RRU researchers supporting Colwood going solar

An RRU team of researchers was funded by the Pacific Institute for Climate Change for their initiative: Understanding the public uptake and acceptance of a municipal green energy incentive program.


An inter-school collaboration, the project is led by Chris Ling, School of Environment& Sustainability, and the research team includes Charles Krusekopf, School of Environment & Sustainability; Nancy Wilkin, Office of Sustainability; and Ingrid Kajzer Mitchell, School of Business.


The project entails a collaboration between RRU and the City of Colwood to ensure the success of the “Solar Colwood” project, which has as one of its goals to have 1,000 homes in Colwood install solar thermal water heating systems.
