Partner: Old Crow First Nation
With a population of less than 300, the Yukon community of Old Crow is so ensconced in nature that it can’t be reached by car. Its people have lived off the land for generations, relying on the Porcupine caribou herd for food and resources. The caribou don’t actually resemble porcupines—they’re named after the Porcupine River that runs through the Yukon and Alaska.
Now, the community wants to ensure its energy independence with a new solar project. Bullfrog is providing financing for the early planning stages of the project.
