Ep. 1: Plugged in

Episode Summary

Think your hydro is bad? Try living off a diesel generator.

Episode Notes

People in Ontario have been complaining about hydro for years, but at least your town doesn't run on a diesel generator. Many First Nations in the Northwestern part of the province have to rely on these dirty, outdated and costly generators for electricity. Plus, there are houses in these communities that sit empty because the generators are over-capacity. Margaret Kenequanash is the CEO of Wataynikaneyap Power and she's working to connect 17 First Nations in the region to Ontario's power grid in the next five years.
