First Nations-led renewable energy organization is a historic move for BC – The Georgia Straight

November 9th, 2023

Smalyax K’uul means “coming together as one”—and that is exactly what First Nation leaders in BC’s northwest are doing.

We have come together to form K’uul Power: a First Nations-led organization that will pursue the development and operation of renewable energy transmission and generation projects in northwestern British Columbia.

As the Chief of the Tsil kaz koh Nation, I am joined by a number of First Nations elected and hereditary leaders who have signed a collaboration and communications protocol agreement, including Nee Tahi Bunh; Wet’suwet’en First Nation; Hereditary Chief Samooh of Birch House; Witset; Kitsumkalum; Kitselas; Nisga’a; Haisla; Nadleh Whuten; and Nazko.

Discussions are also taking place with representatives of other First Nations to support ongoing collaboration. We welcome their involvement and will continue to openly share information while they consider more formal participation.
