Project Objectives

The Société Kuujuamiut Inc. is pursuing a number of clean energy projects in the community of Kuujjuaq including a 100kW roof-top solar project and a geo-thermal heating project at the community arena, a feasibility study to assess the potential of additional community-scale green energy projects, the installation of two electric vehicle charging stations, and installing solar powered energy systems for cabins.

Expected Results
