Xeni Gwet’in Nation, 300 km west of 100 Mile House in central BC, are leaders in managing community energy demand and building renewable energy systems. In 2018, with the help of the Natural Resources Canada, the community took their energy efficiency goals one step further by implementing eEthos to automate, track, and prioritize operational tasks including housing maintenance, scheduling and stock inventory.
Community Power worked with Xeni Gwet’in to upload existing data to the system including scanning in information from hard copy documents and transferring data from Excel spreadsheets and other databases to populate the system. Community Administrators were then trained to use the software. Xeni Gwet’in’s Housing Manager, Vera Quilt, participated in the training and has since been using eEthos helping her to reduce her busy workload.
eEthos supports housing, maintenance, and capital works managers in Indigenous communities.
