A second round of water testing for the Fort Nelson First Nation’s geothermal power plant is expected by next week, ensuring groundwater in the region can support geothermal electricity and heat production.
Owned by the Fort Nelson First Nation, the Tu Deh-Kah power plant will be BC’s first geothermal electricity plant once completed. It will use 120-degree water sitting 2,000 to 2,500 metres below the Earth’s surface to generate power and heat year-round greenhouses.
Project coordinator Jamie Capot-Blanc, a member of the Fort Nelson First Nation, is hopeful the tests will yield positive results and excited for the possibilities of clean energy production and local food sustainability.
