CanGEA Member, Kitselas Geothermal Inc, will be one of five Indigenous projects to receive funding from the Government of British Columbia through the First Nations Clean Energy Business Fund (FNCEBF).
The official BC press release utilizes the following quotes from Kitselas Geothermal Chair, David Try:
“Kitselas First Nation is grateful to be supported by the B.C. Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation’s First Nations Clean Energy Business Fund for our renewable geothermal energy project Fuel for Reconciliation. Kitselas Geothermal Inc. has been developing this project since 2014 and has injected millions of dollars into the economy in and around our traditional territory near Terrace. The funding will be a tremendous help in progressing the project’s 2022 field season.
“Decentralized energy projects have the potential to create local jobs, advance technology, develop skills and decrease the environmental impact of our energy choices. Fuel for Reconciliation is poised to deliver both geothermal energy and greenhouse gas reductions on the north coast, benefiting many stakeholders.”
