SHARC International Systems Inc. (SHARC Energy) announced that it has entered into a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Carry the Kettle Nakoda Nation and Saskatchewan Renewable Energy Solutions Inc. The purpose of the MOU is to create an environmentally, socially and economically beneficial renewable energy project utilizing solar energy and SHARC Wastewater Energy Transfer (WET) equipment.
The MOU acknowledges that this renewable energy project would be taking place on Treaty 4 Land in Saskatchewan. Each party to the MOU with Carry the Kettle Nakoda Nation actively recognizes the culture, contributions, and history of Indigenous People in Saskatchewan, Canada and United States, and would like to express honor and respect to Treaty 4’s natural environment and people. It is the intention of the MOU to create a lasting positive impact on Carry the Kettle Nakoda Nation for future generations to come.
The SHARC and PIRANHA WET Systems paired with solar energy will supply clean and efficient heating, cooling, and hot water to the Nakoda Oyade Education Centre. This project will make the education centre amongst the most sustainable in Saskatchewan as it will significantly reduce the nation’s carbon emissions annually through the reduction of propane use on Treaty 4 land.
