Hello Solar Power, Goodbye Electrical Bills
Light up your parks and parking lots with solar powered LED lights.

Operating independent from the grid and immune to power outages, your parks, pathways, parking lots, and other public spaces can always be lit. Plus you save on your electrical bill and there's no bulbs to change.

There is also no need for wiring trenches. Using the natural compression of the earth for strength and stability, ground screw foundations mean you don't have to excavate or wait for concrete delivery and curing.
Biggar just got a bigger discount on a CAT through SUMAdvantage
Thanks to our new capital purchasing program, the Town of Biggar was able to purchase a CAT wheel loader without the hassle of tendering . We have made sure this process is CFTA and NWPTA compliant - all done on your behalf. 
Biggar town foreman, Mark Haynes, describes the process as simple and stress free. "Cameron at Finning was so knowledgeable and knew exactly what discount our municipality was eligible for. I wasn't aware of the new CFTA regulations at the time but now I'm glad I don't have to worry if this process is compliant."
