In 2012/2013, Aki Energy partnered with Fisher River Cree Nation to deliver a successful community wide geothermal energy project - together with Peguis First Nation, this project was the first of it's kind in Canada. 

Fisher River Cree Nation worked with Aki Energy to train 15 local tradespeople to install and maintain geothermal energy, a process through which Fisher River Builders became fully certified by the International Geothermal Energy Alliance and the Manitoba Geothermal Energy Alliance. 

Aki Energy worked with Fisher River Cree Nation to successfully line up $750,000 in first year financing through Manitoba Hydro's PAYS Financing program, which fully covered the upfront costs of installing 50 residential geothermal energy systems in the community. Energy savings from the geothermal energy installations are projected at $50,000 over ten years.

In 2014, Fisher River Cree Nation worked with Aki Energy to expand to project, installing an additional 75 geothermal energy systems with $1,125,000 in financing from Manitoba Hydro's PAYS financing program. Fisher River Builders plans to convert 100% of the community to geothermal energy in the next ten years.
