Canada’s Cowessess First Nation unveils new solar project—enough to power more than 60 homes

Over 800 solar panels have been placed at five facilities at Cowessess First Nation in Saskatchewan. The community estimates they will save $20,000 in energy cost and all that money will be funnelled into underfunded services.

Chief Cadmus Delorme says he hopes the solar fields will inspire the Saskatchewan community’s children and youth.

“It’s going to have ripple effects into our education,” Delorme said. “Now that our kids get to see this, we’re now looking to prepare them for science and engineering. This is our contribution to getting them excited about what they’re going to do in university.”
