Hey, time traveler!

Therefore, the information in it may no longer be up to date. THE INTERLAKE —
Householders of Peguis and Fisher River First Nations are leading the way in cutting
The Edge project develops clean energy, saves a bunch of money, emphasizes the Aboriginal value of living with the land, not just leaving the land.
They are launching the largest geothermal project in the province, heating more than 200 homes
There is also a regulation
Size of indoor hockey field.
This cause means eliminating the long term
Heat these houses with wood and electricity and replace them with the latest, essentially oldest, heating method on Earth.
The typical home heating bill of $600 per month will be significantly reduced, and the risk of house fires will also be significantly reduced, a scourge for the first nation.
Not to mention soot, uneven heat, long time
Cold in winter.
"Burning firewood is what people in our community have traditionally done.
This is a renewable resource, but when your population has doubled over the past 14 years, the demand for wood will be great . " Professional Engineer.
So we studied alternative energy. . .
We feel it is our responsibility as a first nation to promote this. . .
Green Energy for Sustainable DevelopmentEnergy projects.
We need to promote this as a First Nation.
This means geothermal and some solar energy.
The key figure to achieve this is Brent Lauver, whose company connects forks to geothermal, and is now working with two First Nations
Year conversion plan.
So far, 128 homes on the Fisher River and 110 homes on the Peguis have been renovated.
20 pegiuis households also use solar panels to heat hot water to save more.
Once the snow melts, it is planned to add another 50 to 60 people in the upcoming construction season.
"This is not a flash in the pan," said Laufer of geothermal . ".
"This is a project that can be self-contained once it startssustaining.
"Other participants include energy brokers Aki energy and Manitoba Hydro.
Hydro funded the launch of the project for about $3.
The investment is worth $2 million.
Pay 2 million in the form of repaying the homeowner's loan. The big-picture $18-
The million plan is to introduce geothermal heating to some First Nations in five years.
With the support of the electric power smart loan scheme, which has been repaid monthly by the head of household for more than 20 years, the First Nation has proved to be an ideal pilot project to showcase a town
Size Conversion may look like.
Last year, the 50 houses renovated by Peguis saved $200,000 a year for heating.
There is also the backyard, which is three times the size of the urban plot and can be well prepared for the underground geothermal infrastructure.
There is also a collective land base and ownership of houses, which have greatly reduced red tape.
These factors have met the urgent need to break a century --
The old cycle of poverty, and find the measure of financial independence.
This conversion is a fundamental change in the community that has long used wood stoves to supplement the hot and cold heating provided by electrical substrates.
Phrases like "clean heat" and "clean energy" appear a lot in the conversation.
It feels very different, and it could be the ultimate factor in overseeing change.
"I don't have geothermal energy at home.
"I found a big difference here," said Cynthia Murdoch, a lecturer at the Geothermal Academy --
Heated Fisher River fitness center with 80 members in just two months.
"You can feel it on the air and on the skin.
It feels really clear and crisp.
"The joint venture in the Fisher River and Pegis has created about 24 jobs, new expertise, and is the first safe, clean heat source in the history of the first nation of Manitoba.
The friendly competition between the two neighboring communities has made the competition between geothermal staff and their training schedule more intense.
It is hoped that geothermal demand will grow from some households now using geothermal to greater demand.
Glen Cochrane, general manager of construction at pegnis, is the point contractor responsible for the conversion of pegnis.
"This is a pilot project for Manitoba Hydro and Aki Energy.
We jumped over.
Hydropower has promised to pay more than 400 yuan (homeowner loan)
He said.
His staff are now experiencing a steady economic wave on a small scale.
"We will train 10 more times this spring because we are not able to respond to needs and needs.
That's pegiuis.
"We have to reduce our work outside our own borders," Cochrane said . ".
Wood, executive director of Aki Energy, said his agency used industry expertise to cut-
Before the cost to make the family-
An affordable loan program for the first nation.
"It takes an average of $23,000 to install geothermal.
"We have dropped it down to about $15,000," Wood said . ".
Aki will host a national conference on alternative energy in Winnipeg next month to showcase such projects that appeal to the nation's first nations.
The Changping, west of sagakon and Potala prairie near Pine Falls, was the latest to enter the converted country. alexandra. paul@freepress. mb.
