Current Alternative Energy Projects
NTPC and its sister company NT Energy are working to make Green Energy available to all NWT communities. Several communities are benefiting from this green makeover, and Liquid natural gas (LNG) and solar power are part of the picture. Click on the links below for more information on these projects:
Inuvik’s gas plant is running on LNG.
Fort Simpson is drawing part of its power from a large solar array.
In Colville Lake, a battery charged by solar energy is expected to meet community needs through the summer.
New solar arrays were installed in Fort Liard and Wrigley in 2016.
All communities will benefit from the installation of LED streetlights, replacing high pressure sodium lamps with LED bulbs saves communities money.
