First Nation sees potential in green energy with the biggest solar farm in Manitoba

Fisher River Cree Nation will soon be home to the biggest solar farm in Manitoba — a one-megawatt facility that will be hooked up to the province’s power grid — and its backers are hoping that the project will pique the interest of other First Nations.

Fisher River’s solar farm, located about 200 kilometers north of Winnipeg, has almost 3,000 panels.

It’s what Manitoba Hydro calls “the first utility-scale solar project” in the province, and it spans seven acres and was built entirely by Indigenous employees.
