Partners: Hiawatha First Nation, BASF

The Hiawatha First Nation launched a 22 kW solar installation on the Old Railroad Stop, the community’s flagship business and gathering place—with support from BASF and Bullfrog Power.

Built on the location of an old train station and grocery store dating back to the 1850s, the Old Railroad Stop sits in the heart of the community, housing a convenience store, gift shop, gas bar, restaurant and museum. The site essentially functions as a job-training center for local youth and continues to provide employment opportunities for many of them.
