Canada Supports Clean, Renewable Energy Technologies in British Columbia

FORT NELSON, BC, Aug. 23, 2019 /CNW/ - The best solutions for bringing clean energy to rural and remote Indigenous communities come from the people who live there. That is why Canada is investing in these communities to build local skills and knowledge to reduce their use of fossil fuels through renewable energy development. These investments will help position rural and remote communities to thrive in the low-carbon economy.

The Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, today announced a $1-million investment for Deh Tai Limited Partnership, the economic development company of the Fort Nelson First Nation, to assess the resource potential of several renewable energy technologies. This assessment includes a potential geothermal electricity generation project, which involves the Saulteau First Nations' participation.

The project will focus on local energy planning to support a responsible and strategic transition away from diesel dependency. It will also create new economic opportunities and improve the quality of life of community members and is expected to pave the way for future renewable energy projects in the Fort Nelson First Nation community and surrounding area.

A Community Energy Plan will provide a pathway to understand clean energy development opportunities in and around a community; identify areas to improve energy efficiency; and engage community members on the value of having a sustainable, reliable, clean energy source.

Funding for the project comes from the Clean Energy for Rural and Remote Communities program. The six-year, $220-million program aims to reduce reliance on diesel in rural and remote communities by deploying and demonstrating renewable energy, encouraging energy efficiency and building local skills and capacity.

It is part of the Government of Canada'sInvesting in Canada infrastructure plan, a more than $180-billion investment over 12 years in public transit projects, green infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and transportation routes and Canada's rural and northern communities.
