Partnership with Teck Metals Producing Important Research
Problems with power on the East Shore of Kootenay Lake has prompted a study that is now available online.
The Rural Alternative Energy & Resiliency report is written by former Selkirk College student Eva Snyder and a product of research she conducted this past summer.
“This was a project to specifically address renewable energy on the East Shore,” explains Snyder. “It all applies to rural communities, but we used the East Shore as a template.”

The report is made possible through a partnership between Selkirk College, Yasodhara Ashram, the Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute (RDI), Teck Trail Operations and Community Connections.
The study was a product of the Teck Serv program that provides Selkirk College students financial support to undertake a chosen community-based applied research project each summer.
