Nicknaqueet River Hydro
The remote Wuikinuxv First Nation community in River’s Inlet is developing the 350 kW Nicknaqueet River Hydropower Project. The project will utilize 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 is currently under construction and is anticipated to generate over 92% of the electricity currently produced by diesel generators. Wuikinuxv Nation is collaborating with the Nature Conservancy of Canada to complete the project.
