NORTHERN INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY TECHNOLOGIES

We offer a wide range of technologies which specifically address the needs of Canada’s remote northern Indigenous communities and their unique challenges including:

  • Long cold dark winters
  • Dependence on difficult to supply diesel generators
  • Long, challenging and costly supply lines
  • Challenges to provide reliable maintenance

Our growing portfolio of low maintenance renewable energy and energy conservation technology solutions can empower northern communities. We can help communities to become fully self sufficient in terms of electrical power, thermal energy, clean water and food.
