Nicknaqueet River Hydro
The remote Wuikinuxv Nation community in River’s Inlet has completed the construction of the 350 kW Nicknaqueet River Hydropower Project. The project utilizes the abundant hydro resources of British Columbia’s Central Coast to displace diesel in the remote community of approximately 60 residents. Nicknaqueet River Hydropower Project construction was completed in May 2018 and is anticipated to generate over 92% of the electricity previously produced by diesel generators. Wuikinuxv Nation collaborated with the Nature Conservancy of Canada to complete the project, which is now in full operation and providing clean, renewable power to the community.
