Henvey Inlet First Nation Snags Major Energy Contract
Ontario: Henvey Inlet First Nation has won a Feed-In Tariff contract from the Ontario Power Authority. HIFN’s Nigig Power Corp. will produce 300 megawatts through its wind farm project. This is enough to power about 70,000 homes each year.
“Our project team has worked diligently for the past two
years for the project to arrive at this point,” said
Chief Wayne McQuabbie from Henvey Inlet First Nation “It’s a
monumental moment for our First Nation to be awarded
such a large-scale project.”
Henvey Inlet First Nation is located on nearly 20,000 acres of land along Georgian Bay. It is three hours north of Toronto.
