Two off-grid First Nations switching to renewable energy

Two coastal First Nations in B.C. are switching to renewable energy from diesel.

The off-grid communities of Dzawada’enuxw in Kingcome Inlet and Kitasoo/Xai’xais in Klemtu will transition to hydropower with funding from a variety of sources including the province.

The project is expected to cost $25 million.
