The Saugeen First Nation#29 Economic Development Department has been working with Rivercourt Engineering to develop a long term Aboriginal Community Energy Plan (ACEP) for Saugeen. This initiative is in the final stages of development and a draft final report is available for the community to review and discuss at this time.
This project was made possible in part through the financial support of the Independent Electricity System Operator’s Aboriginal Community Energy Plan Program.
The purpose of the energy plan is to provide a pathway for achieving an ultimate outcome that meets the aspirations of the community with available opportunities. Establishing a vision of what is possible provides guidance to the steps to be taken. Harvesting and managing energy is central to the well-being of a community.
