Off Grid Facilities

OFF GRID ENERGY SOLUTIONS

Most Canadian population centres are well equipped to satisfy the energy needs for modern society through a sophisticated distribution network for power, natural gas and other fuels. Many other places across this vast land, and large parts of many other nations, do not have the energy supplies that most Canadians in settled areas enjoy, and must rely on expensive, polluting and unreliable supplies of diesel and other fuels for basic needs.

The following is a short list of places which can benefit from some of the “Off Grid” technologies discussed in this this newsletter:

  • Cottages Camp Grounds
  • Coast Guard Stations
  • First Nation Communities
  • Island Communities & Homes
  • Isolated Communities
  • Mines & Natural Resource Sites
  • Northern Roads, Rail Lines & Air Strips
  • National Defence Facilities
  • Research & Scientific Outposts
The following is a list of innovative technologies now available which are detailed below:
