First Nation’s Community Sets up Solar in Heart of Alberta’s Oil Sands Territory

SOLAR IN THE TAR SANDS 

Indigenous community launches solar powered health centre

This summer the community of Little Buffalo launched the Piitapan Solar Project, a 20.8kW renewable energy installation that powers the health centre. The inspiring 80-panel solar project was developed in a bid to create more green jobs and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
