Ontario First Nation Solar Power Project Opens

Earlier this week a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to launch a solar project at Deer Lake First Nation, an isolated community located 580 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay, ON. Chief Royle Meekis says the project, consisting of 624 solar panels on the roof of the school will provide enough power to take the school off the grid which will in turn allow the funding to be redirected to open 5 boarded up houses.
