Electrical Distribution Workshop Well Attended

Recently, led by four Tribal Councils, a 3 day Electrical Distribution Workshop was held in Thunder on March 21 - 23, 2017 which was well attended by delegates from the remote First Nation communities that share concerns with respect to their local utilities, whether Hydro One Remotes or an Independent Power Authority.  There were 46 FN delegates representing 20 remote communities.  The priority discussions / break out sessions identified the current progress in supporting Grid Connection for Remote Communities and discussions around back up power, once these communities are connected.
