First Nation Projects

First Nations have long recognized the power of land, sky and wind. They were the first true believers in renewable energy. We are proud partners with First Nations communities in renewable energy projects.

Starting in 2006, 3G helped M’Chigeeng First Nation of Manitoulin Island create the first wholly Aboriginal-owned utility scale wind farm in Ontario. This 4 Megawatt commercial wind project reached its Commercial Operation Date in June 2012, making the M’Chigeeng the first Ontario First Nation to develop wind power.

In 2011, we helped two Ontario First Nation communities create four solar projects. 

Other First Nation communities we have assisted include: Henvey Inlet FN, Wasauksing FN, Nipissing FN, Serpent River FN, Swan lake FN, Wolfe Lake FN, and others.
