COMPLAINT 

I believe it will be far easier to follow my complaint with these blog entries with 
explanation.



This is regarding my FOI (freedom of information) request for records regarding the
engineering drawings for the Nelson Community Solar Garden

Its my contention this fails the engineering as provided for the project.
This disrespects the public by Nelson hydro management who accept this work and the profession of engineering whose members deliver this work.

The Engineering Firm MacLeod Nine Consultants Ltd. of Nelson BC provided the
city the drawings as Project No. 15-065 to Nelson Hydro.

Dated 160310 Issued for Pricing  Rev B
           160407 Issued for Review  "     A


The Installation is not installed as shown on these drawings resulting in shading of solar panels
and movement of ground mounted concrete ballasting due to earth movements possibly
a result of not using the mentioned 1200 lb vibratory roller stated in the engineers drawings.

Also be aware in certain jurisdictions fire insurance is no longer available and likely will 
find its way here into BC.

Building inspectors and Emergency responders pay attention to the setback requirements on roof systems, for example these DO NOT exist for the present Balfour community buildings, especially the Community Hall.

BE AWARE in case of emergency/fire, shutting off the building power or solar still leaves 
LETHAL voltages on the roof in sunshine.   There are techniques for fire departments, training and 
other aids that will and should be trained in case of emergencies/fires.

The recently announced new offering of $900,000 in CBT grant funding for community alternate energy systems will likely result in more community building solar systems
