Bullfrog Power®, Canada’s leading green energy provider, and First Nations Power Authority, recently launched two projects that showcase solar technology specifically designed for Canada’s climate. The two latest projects are designed to offset power consumption for schools in the communities of Fond du Lac and Hatchet Lake. These power generation projects are FNPA’s second and third Strategic Off Grid and Renewables projects. The SOAR project was initiated by FNPA to develop small-scale power projects to research emerging technologies—including solar photovoltaic. FNPA is partnering with a number of First Nations and private industry to develop new technologies for reliable energy sources that will improve business productivity and support community sustainability in remote areas. The first SOAR project is a solar photovoltaic demonstration project in Swift Current. “These renewable power generation systems are important to the First Nations communities as they work to lower their power bills, increase the reliability of the electrical grid in remote areas and reduce their environmental footprint,” said First Nations Power Authority CEO Leah Nelson Guay.
