Partner: Kanaka Bar Indian Band

B.C.’s Kanaka Bar Indian Band, located in the Fraser Canyon, is now home to a 10 kW solar project—built with the support of Bullfrog customers. The Band has long focused on the sustainable use of its land resources and partnered on the construction of a 50 MW run-of-river hydro project in 2014. The solar project is an extension of this commitment and gives the Band an opportunity to integrate solar training into the community.
