Haida Gwaii village, in British Columbia, aims to eliminate diesel by turning to renewable energy

A small village on British Columbia’s picturesque Haida Gwaii wants to replace the diesel fuel it relies on with renewable energy

The Village of Queen Charlotte, which has about 850 residents, recently issued a request for proposals for engineering companies to study options that will offset greenhouse gas emissions by using solar, wind or hydro instead.

“It’s just the right thing to do. You know, global warming is occurring,” said Queen Charlotte Mayor Kris Olsen, whose Haida name is Dluuguu.
