One-Percent For The Planet


   Come Out and Learn How to Charge your Batteries!   

Take part in a guided tours of SPEC’s solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on top of Mountain Equipment Co-op’s offices in Vancouver.

Established in 2014, hundreds of participants have taken the tour, learning about solar systems, cost savings and how to integrate solar in their own homes and buildings. Great for kids, adults and the curious. 

These 1 hour tours run in the spring and summer. Free to the public; by donation for school groups or local businesses. To register and/or arrange a private tour, email

Tours are hosted in partnership with Vancouver Renewable Energy Coop (VREC). Tours are funded and supported by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, Bullfrog Power, MEC, and SPEC's individual donors.

Important: The solar panels are not wheelchair accessible. To reach them, you have to climb a 2 meter ladder.
