March 13, 2014 – Alderville First Nation, ON – Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada
The Government of Canada is proud to support Alderville First Nation in the construction of the Alderville Solar Farm. The five-megawatt solar farm is the first alternative energy project in Canada to be 100% owned by a First Nation community and will also provide sustainable revenue as well as ongoing employment.
Rick Norlock, Member of Parliament for Northumberland–Quinte West, on behalf of the Honourable Bernard Valcourt, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, joined Alderville Chief James Marsden for a tour of the solar farm facilities today.
