Of the $12.14 million handed out, the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte will receive $505,000 and Alderville First Nation is getting $328,500.
In Tyendinaga, the money will be allocated to hiring a Community Energy Champion for three years ($180,000), project management for training and skills for renewable energy projects ($125,000), and an energy-as-a-service business model for a solar panel system ($200,000).
