Lead Proponent

Hamlet of Kugaaruk

Project Objectives

The Hamlet of Kugaaruk is pursuing a community-wide residential retrofit program that will help community members complete energy retrofits in their homes and promote the installation of small-scale PV systems within the residential sector. The project will also install solar PV on the Wellness Centre, Business Development Centre and the Kugaaruk Arena.

Expected Results

Implementing the Hamlet of Kugaaruk's project is expected to have many positive benefits including local training and employment, local economic development, and mitigating climate change. The project is anticipated to reduce the Hamlet's diesel consumption by 56,500 litres annually, and save the community an estimated $95,000 per year.
