T'Souke First Nation Solar Community

Named Canada's first Aboriginal solar community, the T'Sou-ke Nation has created an inspiring story for sustainability. Solar electricity now powers their community, while solar hot water systems are installed on forty houses. Solar-powered vehicle charging stations and community greenhouses contribute to the T'Sou-ke Nation's sustainable way of life. The solar installations have inspired tourists, schools, municipalities, and all levels of government to come participate in workshops and tours of the facilities.  With a recent award presented by the Nuu-chah-nulth Economic Development Corporation, the T'Sou'ke people plan to construct four greenhouses with the intention of growing and harvesting wasabi amd other foods.
