Indigenous groups celebrate new solar farm in Fort Chipewyan – Cabin Radio

November 19, 2020

An Indigenous-owned clean energy company in northern Alberta has finished work on what it says is Canada’s largest solar farm in a remote community.

Three Nations Energy or 3NE is jointly owned by the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, Mikisew Cree First Nation, and Fort Chipewyan Métis Association. On Tuesday, a small event was held to celebrate completion of the solar project in Fort Chipewyan.

“The 3NE Solar Farm Partnership demonstrates how Cree, Dene and Métis peoples of the Delta can work together to bring new technologies into our communities,” Mikisew Cree First Nation Chief Peter Powder said in a statement. “This builds the capacity of our own tradespeople, workers, and contractors to participate in the emerging green energy sector.”
