Piikani Resource Development Ltd. is pleased to announce the expansion of an additional 192 solar panels on the building, to maximize the green energy production for an additional 65.28 kW.
This expansion could provide a savings to the PRDL building, which is home to the Piikani Tsi Nii Ka Sin, Peigan Indian R.E.A, Piikani Investment Corporation and Peigan Crowlodge Elders Society. Coinciding with PRDL’s mission: By recognizing and interpreting our Piikani protocols into today’s best business practices, we will both reinforce our Piikani ways and create sustainable resource base for future generations.
