Environmental Benefits

Energy storage offers greater flexibility to respond to system peaks, avoiding natural gas power and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

System Efficiencies

Energy storage can capture excess renewable energy and release it when needed, making a smoother transition to sustainable energy sources for your community.

Indigenous Partnerships

The Project Partners prioritize relationships with local First Nations communities with the goal of majority ownership as a means to provide a pathway towards shared long-term benefits and meaningful economic reconciliation.
