Green Energy Economic Development
A major component of this project is to provide significant assistance to one green energy project in each Beetle Action Coalition region. The CCBAC region is in the process of identifying the pilot community in cooperation with School Districts 27 and 28. In addition to this, a “pre-feasibility” analysis is to be done for at least one green energy concept in each Beetle Action Coalition region. Work is ongoing in this area. This is a two year project.
Funding Partners: Federal Rural Secretariat-Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation, Mountain Pine Beetle Epidemic Response Division, Columbia Basin Trust, Omineca Beetle Action Coalition, Southern Interior Beetle Action Coalition, and CCBAC.
CCBAC contribution: $25,000 • Project total: $250,000

Green Heat Initiative Project
For the CCBAC region pilot area it has supplied support for Green Heat Initiatives in the form of locally developed alternative heating projects for Alexis Creek and Tatla Lake Schools. These plans have resulted in construction and installation of biofuel heating systems for these rural schools. Other projects include analysis and evaluation for potential bio-energy projects in Tsilhqot’in and Ulkatcho First nations communities which are either completed or underway and a Likely wood value added company for a potential system to supply heat for building and kilns. This a two year project.
CCBAC contribution: $35,000 • Project total: $138,000
