After months of planning and negotiating, Fort Severn has given the thumbs up for the next stage of solar development in their First Nation. NCC Development and its EPC partner will install a 300 kW solar / 300 kW storage with a controller solution once funding is in place. Chief Joseph Crowe says, “Fort Severn has a growing population with a new school under construction. We need more electrical power. NCC is bringing us a clean and cost effective alternative to diesel”. Currently, Fort Severn operates a 20 kW rooftop solar system on their four-bay garage.
