Grant offered for solar project

The planned solar power project for Nelson just got a bit cheaper.

Canadian company Bullfrog Power has announced it will offer an additional grant.

Ecosave Program Co-ordinator with Nelson Hydro Carmen Proctor says the company has been onboard since the beginning.

This investment brings the estimated price per panel down to about $850 and should reduce the pay-back period to between 12 and 15 years.

Proctor says 95 of 150 panels needed to get underway next spring have now been sold to the public.
