Partner: Lubicon Lake Band
After an oil spill on its traditional territory in 2011, the Lubicon Lake Band decided to chart a new course for its community. With hopes of a cleaner future, the Band built the Piitapan Solar Project: an 80-panel installation. Today, the Piitapan project feeds clean green energy into the community’s health centre, and ensures renewable energy will be available for the community’s future generations. Support from Bullfrog customers provided the initial funding for the 80-panel installation.
“This new solar panel system can shine like a beacon, showing that this is the way of the future,” says Melina Laboucan-Massimo, an environmental advocate and member of the community.
