The Rossland Sustainability Commission held its second-annual Energy Crawl on Saturday.
The Rossland Public Library acted as Energy Crawl Headquarters, where participants could pick up a map of the stops, calculate their carbon footprint and check out some locally owned electric cars.
The event also featured three different energy efficient homes, two of which use solar.
“We had such incredible interest at our Solar in a Mountain Town workshop that we decided that the focus for our energy crawl this year would be passive and active solar homes. So … two of the featured homes have very strong passive solar features and one of those homes also has two active solar energy systems,” explained Ann Damude, community engagement coordinator for the Sustainability Commission.
Saturday’s snow kept some indoors, but Damude said a number of people had dropped by the library to see the electric cars.
