The governments of Canada and Nunavut announce investments in energy efficiency upgrades that help residents save energy and money
“The Government of Canada is working with the Government of Nunavut to put practical climate solutions into action. The investments today in energy efficiency programs will help residents of Nunavut make their homes and buildings more comfortable and save money on electricity bills while reducing carbon pollution. Together, they will help protect our environment and strengthen our economy today and for generations to come.”
– Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Government of Canada
“In the spirit of Pivaallirutivut, the Department of Environment is proud to work with the Department of Community and Government Services, Qulliq Energy Corporation and Nunavut Housing Corporation on delivering the Low Carbon Energy Fund to projects that improve our energy infrastructure for the long-term benefit of Nunavummiut.”
– Jeannie Ehaloak, Minister of Environment, Government of Nunavut
The Government of Canada’s Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund will help make homes and buildings more energy efficient, comfortable and affordable to run.
The Nunavut Housing Corporation will oversee energy efficiency upgrades and retrofits of approximately 1000 of the 3300 public-housing units constructed prior to 2000.
Feasibility studies estimate that a new district heating system in Sanikiluaq will displace approximately 124 000 litres of fuel and 340 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually and up to 174 000 litres of fuel and 480 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually in Taloyoak.
