Chinook is continually looking for opportunities to partner and learn from other organizations that share a vision for advancing renewable energy.
Most good wind energy sites are located in rural regions. It follows that rural communities should benefit from these wind energy facilities. Chinook will be consulting with local government offices and communities, stakeholders and First Nations to ensure acceptance and participation in the development of renewable energy in their regions.
