Solvest Projects With Local Engagement

Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation, Old Crow, Yukon

Project Size: 940kW DC – 480kW AC     Year: 2018-2019

Solvest hired and trained four Vuntut Gwitchin citizens to work on the test project in Old Crow. One of the hires moved on to join the Solvest crew in Manitoba working on the Fisher River Cree job and still works for Solvest today. During the moduling and racking phase of construction for the Old Crow Solar Project, which started in fall 2018, over 50% of the workforce was from the community itself.  Read about more Solvest projects and shared images …
