A unique donation to the Oliver Food Bank!


Oliver, BC –
We’ve made a unique donation to the Oliver Food Bank by donating 2 Solar Panels that will supply the Food Bank with over 10% of their electrical needs. This initial donation includes all of the hardware and labour needed to install the solar panel array. By installing the array, Argon Solar will be providing the Food Bank with a yearly ongoing benefit for over the next 25 years. We have provided the infrastructure to allow for additional panel installations. For example, we can add up to 20 solar panels which would be enough power to cover 100% of the energy needs of the Oliver Food Bank. Food Banks are required to store food in freezers and fridges which use up large amounts of electricity. Our hope is that other community members will consider purchasing additional panels which would free up cash for the Food Bank to invest in ways to benefit those who require their services.

Jim Ouellette, Treasurer of The Oliver Food Bank couldn’t be happier about Argon Solar’s contribution. “When Dave and Dean from Argon Solar approached me with a very generous offer to install two solar panels on the Oliver Food Bank I was very excited and interested because I saw it as a very different donation and something that would benefit our operation not only for now but well into the future. As treasurer of the Food Bank Society, it is my responsibility to find innovative ways to control expenses and manage donations that will benefit the most without compromising what we do to provide healthy food for our clients. With these solar panels, it puts electrical energy directly into our panel and eventually if we can encourage other organizations and individuals to find ways to purchase a panel, we can reduce our electric bill to just about nil and contribute our little bit to improve and care for the environment.”
