First Nations Home EnergySave Training & Development Opportunities
The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) invites Indigenous communities in BC to participate in the "Ask an Energy Specialist" Project
"Ask an Energy Specialist" aims to support First Nations communities that have an interest in housing energy efficiency but are in the early stages of planning or implementation. The project will help your community get started on energy efficiency work by offering short-term guidance (3 - 8 hours) from an SES Consulting Energy Specialist.
How it Works
When you contact us, the Fraser Basin Council will ask you some questions to help get an overview of the energy efficiency work to date and identify specific areas you are looking for guidance.
The areas of support may include:
When the focus area is decided, FBC will arrange a series of consultancy meetings with an SES specialist to help guide your community towards the desired outcome.
If this project is of interest to you and the community you support, please contact Tom Welfare:

This training series is made possible through the support of our funding partners at BC Hydro, FortisBC, Real Estate Foundation of BC and the Province of British Columbia (Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources).
Praise for the 2020-21 Webinar Series
“Hello, my name is Edmund Haines. I’m from Nemiah Valley, B.C. I have an 8-year-old daughter. I like to fish and hunt with her to show her our culture, language and traditions. My experience with the webinar series was that it has been a good learning experience to gain more knowledge on home energy management. They were well on time and on track, not too long or too short. Overall, it was good and I look forward to the next ones coming up.”
