On Leap Year, February 29, 2016, the Fort Chipewyan Renewable Energy Society will meet at Uncle Fred’s Elders and Youth Lodge to participate in the final install of five more solar panels (winter angle) on the roof of this building. Initiated by Keepers of the Athabasca, hosted by Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, and funded by the Alberta EcoTrust Foundation, Lush, Glasswaters Foundation and others, this project provides power to the furnace, electronics and emergency lighting for 72 hours in case of a power outage, or up to 3,200 kwh annually.
