Natural Resources Canada Announces Support for the Arviat Clean Energy Microgrid Project
Natural Resources Canada today announced their support of three community-led clean energy projects in Nunavut. Included in the announcement was over $750,000 for NRStor Inc. and the Hamlet of Arviat to conduct a front-end engineering design study for a hybrid wind, solar and energy storage system to develop a detailed plan covering everything from power-purchase agreements to environmental assessment and permitting to enhance the Nunavut community’s ability to deliver renewable energy and reduce emissions.
“The Hamlet of Arviat is playing an important leadership role in demonstrating to communities across Nunavut how clean energy can be used to unlock environmental as well as economic benefits. We are excited to lead the development of this project in partnership with the Hamlet of Arviat.”
Annette Verschuren, CEO of NRStor Inc.
