Sandy Lake First Nation

The Sandy Lake Diesel Generating Station (DGS) has 4 Generators ranging from 1250-1500 kW providing electrical power and distribution for the more than 2,650 on-reserve residents (2022) of the remote, fly-in Oji-Cree speaking community located in Northwestern Ontario on beautiful Sandy Lake. Due to the large community size and corresponding load, Sandy Lake is home to our largest units in service.
