2021 Renewable Energy for Remote Communities
Take a look at the exciting clean energy projects ahead at Kwadacha First Nation, Hesquiaht First Nation and Lhoosk'uz Dené First Nation with support from provincial Renewable Energy for Remote Communities program.
As part of CleanBC, the Province of British Columbia’s Renewable Energy for Remote Communities (RERC) Program aims to reduce reliance on diesel by funding the capital costs of renewable electricity projects. The program is designed to complement other initiatives that assist remote communities as they undertake energy planning, increase energy efficiency, and decarbonize their energy systems.
The RERC Program is a key part of the CleanBC Remote Community Energy Strategy (RCES). The Strategy targets the largest diesel generating stations in BC and aims to reduce province-wide diesel consumption for generating electricity in remote communities by 80% by 2030.
