The second will be 1000kW with a 1000kWh battery. Additionally, this project will support an LED lighting campaign, a building and audit retrofit program, and a biomass pilot project.
Primary diesel reduction will begin once the solar projects are operational, currently projected for 2024/25. Diesel reduction will be primarily through the provision of renewably generated solar electricity, as well as secondary, smaller projects focused on energy efficiency and conservation. The anticipated diesel reduction per year is for each community is 360,000 L for Coral Harbour and 390,000 L for Naujaat.
