Bullfrog Power is providing funding for three solar energy projects at remote youth camps in the Haida Gwaii nation. Under the Solar: A Bright Future, the green energy provider has partnered with the Swiilawiid Sustainability Society to deploy solar power at the ReDiscovery Haida Gwaii ProgramSwan Bay Rediscovery Camp and Mount Moresby Adventure Camp.

 

“These solar installations demonstrate Haida Gwaii’s commitment to work towards a renewable and environmentally sustainable future. I went to Haida Gwaii Rediscovery when I was a young teen and it was really transformative. We are so excited to be helping foster the next generation of environmental leaders,” said Valine Crist, a coordinator at Swiilawiid Sustainability Society.

Solar: A Bright Future is an initiative to reduce the camps’ environmental footprint, showing youth and local communities how to be environmental stewards and to learn more about energy systems on Haida Gwaii. Youth who attend the camp will have the opportunity to learn about solar potential and see first-hand that small-scale clean energy is possible.

“Swiilawiid’s Solar: A Bright Future is an inspiring example that renewable energy is possible on Haida Gwaii and will illustrate the potential for small-scale renewable energy on the Islands,” said Ron Seftel, CEO at Bullfrog Power. “Thanks to the support of individuals and businesses across Canada who choose renewable energy with Bullfrog Power, we’re able to support this community-led transition to cleaner forms of energy.”

Through its community renewable projects program, Bullfrog Power has supported more than 115 green energy projects nationwide. Across Canada, Bullfrog Power community projects include the Hope Blooms solar greenhouse in Halifax as well as solar projects with the Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation in the Northwest Territories and BC’s Kanaka Bar Indian Band.
