Design of a solar power farm north of Whitehorse
The Old Crow community, home of the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation, is located 800 km north of Whitehorse, inside the Arctic Circle. Like many remote communities, the Vuntut Gwitchin wanted to reduce their reliance on diesel fuel by switching to solar power.
The project was to design a solar power farm with 900 kW panels and 350 kWh of battery storage, the largest solar project in the Yukon.
