Project 0% Diesel
“Project 0” is the first assignment Swiilawiid is taking on, and the vision is in the title: Get Haida Gwaii off diesel-generated electricity. By reducing our overall energy use through energy conservation and retrofits, and by introducing small-scale, renewable energy projects, we think a swift transition away from diesel is 100% doable.
The energy shift is environmentally responsible and socially just. Plus, there’s big potential for jobs in the renewable energy sector. With the expected increase in BC Hydro rates in the next two years, there are also growing financial incentives to invest in local, clean power.
