Description: Beginning with a strategic planning session in 2007, the Stellat'en First Nation community has selected Wind Energy as a top economic development priority. Stellat'en First Nation wishes to complete a detailed wind resource evaluation to determine whether a wind energy operation might be feasible in the area. The resource assessment will be contracted to a technical expert in wind analysis. This project includes five steps to complete an analysis of the wind resource on the Stellat'en First Nation territory and a scoping study of financing and partnership models for project development.
