A Brief History Of KPC
Situated in a remote area of Northeastern Ontario, on the northern shore of the Albany River, the community originated as one of the oldest Hudson’s Bay Company trading posts. As a primarily fly-in community located approximately 150 miles north of Moosonee, reliable power has historically been a challenge. Since 2001, Five Nations Energy Inc.’s Omushkego Ishkotayo Project has connected Hydro One’s facilities in Moosonee to a substation in Kashechewan, allowing Kashechewan Power Corporation to deliver efficient and safe power to customers.
