Energy Efficiency Policies in Three Communities
Here's a look at the experiences in three BC First Nations communities — Musqueam, Laxgalts'ap Village and Tsawwassen — to develop and implement energy efficiency policies. Learn about the approaches each community is taking to create efficiency, lower utility costs and improve health, and safety of people’s homes and other amenities.
Floodplain Mapping Projects
The Province of BC is seeking to create high-quality floodplain maps for BC communities that are exposed to riverine, lakeshore and/or coastal flood hazards. The new floodplain mapping initiative is managed by FBC on behalf of the Province and at the direction of project committees.
Kwadacha Solar Energy
Kwadacha Nation has advanced clean energy for their remote community — 500+ km north of Prince George — with a new solar photovoltaic system on the rooftop of Aatse Davie School. The system now produces clean energy to directly power the school, which cuts fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions and saves money. Other important benefits: this clean energy transition reduces air pollution and noise pollution from diesel power generation.
