Advancing the Enoch Cree Nation Solar Farm

Enoch Cree Nation is actively working to complete a detailed feasibility study for a 10-megawatt solar farm.  There is much work to do to complete this feasibility study, however, if the project is deemed feasible Enoch Cree Nation will develop, own and operate the project in order to maximize the economic and community benefits.  This presentation will provide an overview of how this project was first conceptualized, the unique strategies being pursued to advance its development and overall benefits of the project to Enoch Cree Nation and more generally Alberta.
