About The Project:
The Smart Renewables Electrification Pathways Program (SREP) is a program that provides funding for renewable energy and electrical grid modernization projects from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). This project is through the capacity-building stream of the SREP projects, which aims to support communities to work towards greater energy autonomy and sovereignty while sharing knowledge, establishing skills, and building in-community experiences related to energy. The goals of this project are to:
- Build capacity within the communities of Lac La Ronge Indian Band to deliver on renewable energy projects.
- Increase the collective community’s understanding of energy planning, including energy efficiency and conservation
- Connect the community energy planning process to climate change goals
- Create inclusive opportunities for the entire community to learn about, participate in, and develop skills in community energy planning.
- Support LLRIB as they work towards greater energy autonomy and sovereignty.
As a result of this project, and as a step towards becoming more energy-autonomous, each of the six Lac La Ronge Indian Band communities will have developed a Community Energy Plan, establishing a secure energy future vision from the ground up.
