Eric Little is a renewable energy researcher and student at Thompson Rivers University. He has submitted 3 renewable energy facility proposals this past year on behalf of the federal government. He has received praise from both the Honourable Ministers Catherine Mckenna and Elizabeth May for his publications. His focus is on integrating renewables in First Nations Communities, where electricity is either partially or exclusively generated via the burning of fossil fuels. He plans to grow Kamloops Solar into a First Nations owned and operated utility company, which distributes clean, affordable power throughout Northwestern Canada.
