April 24, 2023 | By Anthony Capkun

April 24, 2023 – In Ontario, the Taykwa Tagamou Nation (TTN) and Oneida Nation of the Thames (Oneida) are receiving over $1 million to develop distributed energy resources “that will help address the unique demand increases, and the reliability and energy challenges, in First Nations communities”.

Natural Resources Canada explains TTN and Oneida are both rapidly growing communities whose existing distribution systems are “in need of modernization”.

This project, adds NRCan, “seizes the opportunity to optimize improved DER systems in a manner that will assist TTN and Oneida to build community-based skills and expertise”.

“Taykwa Tagamou Nation is pleased to partner alongside the Government of Canada with community-led solutions at the forefront that empower our members to thrive in this rapidly evolving field,” said Chief Bruce Archibald.


Federal funding for this project is provided by the $1.56-billion Smart Renewables and Electrification Pathways (SREP) program.
