UMBATA CHEQUE PRESENTATION


PRFN RECEIVES FIRST DIVIDENDS FROM UMBATA FALLS


Umbata Cheque Presentation
Umbata Cheque Presentation presented by Board Chairperson, Begetekong Power Corporation,
Roy Michano and First Vice-President, Byron LeClair to Band Administrator, Debi Bouchie. 


 
November 12 marked a day of celebration for Pic River First Nation and their hydroelectric program. Begetekong Power Corporation was pleased to present a cheque to the community from the first dividends from operations at the Umbata Falls Station. The station which was commissioned in November 2008 has performed well beyond expectations. Higher than anticipated water flows and better than expected output from the station generators, have meant that the station has produced 15% more than was originally expected. Indication of a great first year.

The distributions to Pic River will occur every 3 months.  Chief and Council will re-invest some the funds in new project development and invest into community projects as outlined in the community strategic plan.
