Colville Lake Solar Project
Colville Lake is located north of the Arctic Circle and is served with a winter road that is open just a few weeks each year. LNG fuel is not a viable option here.
Here, NTPC will install a solar/diesel/battery system that will shut down the diesel plant for extended periods in the summer. It is anticipated that this hybrid energy solution will significantly reduce diesel use and related emissions by supplying most of the community’s needs in the summer months. This project is also of interest to utilities in Alaska.
