Lighting the Way for an Energy Transformation

Haida Gwaii may not be the sunniest place in the world, but recent advances in solar panel technology mean that even here it is possible to generate energy from sunshine. The Swiilawiid Sustainability Society and the Skidegate Band Council have both been leading the way to change Haida Gwaii’s dependence on diesel-generated electricity. The Gwaii Trust was proud to partner with these two organizations on projects involving solar panels to be installed on the roof at the Haida Heritage Centre and at three remote youth camps.
