LILLOOET, B.C. — Through the First Nations Clean Energy Business Fund (FNCEBF), the B.C. government is providing the Tsal’alh Government with $500,000 in funding to empower community members with access to more efficient and sustainable sources of energy.

The nation is partnering with the province to develop projects that champion innovation and align with the CleanBC plan to reduce emissions that cause climate change, a release indicates.

A new project in the Interior will include designing and building a solar-photovoltaic system to reduce power outages in the community and strengthen local resiliency; and improving safety and living conditions for community members by installing energy-efficient upgrades in 23 homes.

The FNCEBF supports clean energy projects led by First Nations communities, such as installing heat pumps and solar roofs as well as improving insulation in homes, energy-efficiency planning and educational events, adds the release.
