Aaron Lucke, owner of Wynndel Electric in Creston, is excited that people are adopting solar energy, recognizing that it’s a good option even in the Kootenays, where there’s more than enough sun to make it economically feasible. Kimberley’s SunMine is a great example of that, and Creston's wide open valley can do at least as well. Lucke has been operating his business in Creston for a couple of years and is pleased to provide a portable solar station at the Creston Farmers Market where the public can see it in action and vendors can reap the benefits.
