Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation will install a 214 kW solar photovoltaic net-metering project at the community bingo hall to reduce electrical-grid consumption and greenhouse-gas emissions, with the help of $349,000 in funding from the Low Carbon Economy Fund. This solar-energy project will contribute to a net-zero carbon facility while improving local clean-energy infrastructure for the Six Nations community.

The funding comes from the Partnerships stream of the Government of Canada’s Low Carbon Economy Challenge, which invests in projects that reduce carbon pollution, save money, and create good jobs.

“We are very proud to have this exciting new project underway. The installation of solar panels will bring our Bingo Hall closer to a net-zero carbon facility and will showcase our commitment to developing clean-energy infrastructure. The project will be constructed using a Six Nations workforce, will create internal apprenticeship opportunities, and will enable Six Nations to grow economically while providing a positive contribution to the environment, commented Matt Jamieson, CEO and President, Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation.
