With support from Alberta’s Indigenous Climate Leadership programs, the Paul First Nation will:
- Upgrade the energy efficiency of six housing units.
- Develop a long-term energy plan to help the Nation reduce energy needs and greenhouse gas emissions.
- Increase their community’s knowledge and awareness of climate change. Support the technical development stage for a commercially viable 25-megawatt solar farm.
The Paul First Nation is receiving funding through various grants. The grants are part of $35 million in funding available last fiscal year through various streams to meet the needs of Indigenous communities tackling climate change.
These initiatives support the Alberta government’s commitment to implement the principles of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
