Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation Utility
UTILITY DEVELOPMENT, CANADA
SaskPower, a Canadian Crown Corporation, asked the Alaska Center for Energy and Power and Dynamic Microgrid Solutions (an Alaska Microgrid Group subsidiary) to make recommendations for the formation of a tribally-owned distribution utility to serve the members of the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation, a Saskatchewan First Nations band.
The report provided a viable path to developing the first tribally-owned electric cooperative utility in Canada to own and operate local renewable energy projects, including 4 MW solar photovoltaic projects.
