Project Description:
Infrastructure investments in clean energy can create exciting environmental, social and economic benefits that make a real difference in the way we produce to energy today and for our future generations. The first step in considering the development of a clean energy project is to conduct a detailed exploration and measurement campaign on the resources available. This proposal is for the Installation of meteorological towers just outside Rankin Inlet and Baker Lake. These towers will be used to accurately measure the local resource and the true potential for producing clean energy from wind or solar power.
