The First Nations Band of the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, located in the Bay of Quinte in Southern Ontario, operates and manages the local Tyendinaga Health Centre. The Tyendinaga Health Centre is used primarily as a treatment, counseling and emergency response centre.

Health Canada, in conjunction with the Mohawk Band, purchased a Carmanah 5.0 kW solar grid-tie system to be installed alongside the building. The system feeds power to the local distribution system and operates parallel to the local utility grid. Any excess power generated by the system is fed back into the grid.
