The Old Railroad Stop, Hiawatha First Nation
Solar | Community project we're supporting
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.

All bullfrogpowered customers help fund these small-scale, community-led projects, including solar panels on schools and in Indigenous communities, education and training programs, and a cleantech accelerator.
