Red Rock Indian Band and TransCanada Sign a Letter of Intent to Explore Electricity Transmission
FREMONT, CA: Red Rock Indian Band, an Ojibway First Nation band government, signs a Letter of Intent with TransCanada to discuss the electricity requirements to power the Energy East Pipeline project on the traditional territory of the Red Rock First Nation in northwestern Ontario.
Red Rock Indian Band met TransCanada earlier this year to discuss electricity requirements and expressed its interest in the potential to collaborate with Energy East to explore possible electrical infrastructure in the region. Energy Partnership Working group (EPWG) is a recently formed working group that has come to being through the new agreement. It comprises representatives from Red Rock and the Energy East project to review two new transmission line projects with potential to provide for the Eagle Head pump station and to the community, reports Marketwired.
"Today's agreement with Red Rock is a critical step forward in allowing us to explore electricity transmission solutions in support of Energy East, and the Red Rock community itself. I want to express our continued commitment to work collaboratively on issues of common interest with First Nation communities along our route and thank Chief Pelletier for his leadership in achieving today's agreement," says Francois Poirier, President, Energy East Pipeline.
