On January 13, 2022 the Honourable Murray Rankin, the B.C. Cabinet Minister of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation, announced funding for Kitselas Geothermal Inc.’s Fuel for Reconciliation project via a First Nations Clean Energy Business Fund grant. Borealis GeoPower is an affiliate of KGI and minority owner of the 'Fuel for Reconciliation' project in which the Kitselas Development Corporation owns the controlling stake.
Borealis is grateful to be in collaboration with Kitselas Geothermal who has aligned itself with the BC First Nations Climate Strategy and Action Plan. A Guiding Principle of the Plan is “Collaborate and develop true partnerships between First Nations in BC and governments, the private sector, other Indigenous Peoples, and our society as a whole to effectively address the climate emergency.”
The proposed geothermal district heating system, Fuel for Reconciliation, would build capacity, resiliency and self-sufficiency in the BC North Coast region. Fuel for Reconciliation seeks to decarbonize industries in and around Terrace by providing a clean and affordable energy alternative to fossil fuels. The clean energy transition is an act of guardianship that will protect the North Coast from climate change for generations to come.
