Chief Denise Restoule, head of Council for the Dokis First Nation and Jacky Cerceau, President of Hydromega Services are pleased to announce that construction on the Okikendawt Hydroelectric Project has commenced.
Located adjacent to an existing dam that controls an outflow from Lake Nipissing into the French River on traditional Dokis territory, the Okikendawt Project is a commercial venture jointly-owned by Hydromega and the Dokis Nation. The 10 megawatt facility will sell 100% of its power to the Ontario Power Authority for a forty (40) year term through a Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) power purchase agreement.
“The Okikendawt Project is a ground-breaking initiative for our First Nation community”, expressed Chief Restoule. “We are enormously proud to be building a generating station that will supply clean and renewable power for Ontario electricity consumers” she added.
