MOBERLY LAKE, B.C. – One of the largest majority-owned Indigenous green energy projects located in B.C. is now completed and commissioned as of April 1st.

The Sukunka Wind Energy Project was developed in partnership with the Saulteau First Nations and Natural Forces and is located just south of Chetwynd.

The Saulteau First Nations and Natural Forces developed an innovative approach to the project’s design, protecting the environment, construction, investment, and financing. The project was completed on schedule with this approach, even with critical phases being implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Sukunka Wind Energy Project has a capacity of around 15 megawatts which is equivalent to 5,800 households. According to a release, the Project will generate benefits for the Province in an estimated $5.8 million in property taxes and other revenues within the first 30 years of operations.
