The board of the First Nations Major Projects Coalition will provide “capacity support” to the Clarke Lake geothermal project as requested by Fort Nelson First Nation.
The project involves taking hot water from depth at a former natural gas well and bringing it to the surface to generate clean electricity. The project will produce between seven-15 MW of clean sustainable electricity on a year-round basis. That is enough to supply between 5,000 and 11,000 homes.
And, with no CO2 emissions, the project will help the B.C. government achieve its clean energy and climate change targets, the group said.
