B.C. providing $207,000 for Indigenous-led northern clean energy projects

VICTORIA — Two Indigenous communities are receiving a combined $207,000 from the Government of British Columbia for clean-energy projects in the province’s north.

Binche Whut’en First Nation received $177,000 for a solar and energy-storage system at the Come-Unity Centre. The system will generate revenue for the nation and provide access to services during power outages, according to a news release.

The Doig River First Nation received $30,000 to develop a community energy plan for improving efficiency and reducing costs for local buildings.

“A long-term clean-energy plan for Doig River First Nation is more than just a solution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Doig Nation Chief Trevor Makadahay in the release.

“It’s an opportunity to ensure a sustainable and prosperous future for the nation that is aligned with Indigenous values.”

The funding is provided through the First Nations Clean Energy Business Fund, which has provided more than $20 million in capacity and equity funding for 150 Indigenous communities since its inception.
