The Alderville First Nation
will become the first First Nation in Canada to fully-own an alternative energy
project. The five-megawatt Alderville Solar Farm, which has received $1.25
million from the federal government, is expected to provide employment for 25
members during the construction phase and additional employment once
operational. The project could generate more than $56 million in revenue for
the First Nation over 20 years. “We are proud of our renewable energy project,
which will bring a sustainable revenue stream to our community. At the same
time this project will allow this community to contribute to Canada’s economy
now and in the future,” said Alderville First Nation Chief James Marsden in a
news release.
