Provincial support is being provided to the Lhoosk’uz Dené First Nation near Quesnel, B.C. so that it can transition from diesel to clean electricity.

The First Nation was awarded $875,000 by B.C.’s Renewable Energy for Remote Communities (RERC) program that is earmarked for the $2.2-million project in Kluskus. The transition is being made through a 40-kilowatt biomass combined heat and power plant.

The provincial government figures the project will displace 346 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year.
