Government of Alberta
Alberta has partnered with Beaver Lake Cree Nation to install solar panel systems on three buildings to help lower utility bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
With support from Alberta’s Indigenous Solar Program, solar panels will be installed on the Nation’s Busy Beaver Community Store, Wah-Pow Treatment Centre and health centre. The solar panels will help reduce utility costs, allowing the Beaver Lake Cree Nation to reinvest those funds in community projects. It will also prevent about 1,250 tonnes of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere.
“The Alberta Indigenous Solar Program is making life better and more affordable for Indigenous peoples and communities. Our government is proud to support this project and the First Nation’s rich history of environmental leadership.”
– Richard Feehan, Minister of Indigenous Relations.
