Naut'sa mawt Tribal Council is thrilled to congratulate Klahoose Wilderness Resort on soon becoming a 100 percent clean energy eco resort thanks to a grant from the First Nation Energy Business Fund. This will allow them to redesign and improve their water intake, pelton wheel (hydro-wheel), and storage capacity at the resort and draw power from the nearby creek. The project is scheduled to start soon and should be ready by next tourism season.
