Benefits for Community & Environment
Replacing Diesel with Hydro
The Innavik Project will replace all of the energy being produced by diesel generators with clean energy.
New Jobs & Careers
On average, 50 workers will be on site during the construction period, a figure that could peak close to 100. Priority will be given to hiring local candidates. A team of 2-3 operators will operate the facility.
Investment in Entrepreneurship
Revenues and opportunities created through the Innavik project will help grow local entrepreneurs and their enterprises.
Major Pollution Reduction
Green Heat and Power
Switching from diesel to renewable electricity will avoid the emission of 700,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases
over 40 years.
Innavik will generate enough energy to replace what you use for your electricity, air heating, and hot water.
Community Legacy Fund
A Community Legacy Fund, using revenues generated by the Innavik Project, will support youth and elders.
Community Social Support
A Community Social Support Fund will be devoted to community social initiatives.
The renewable energy produced will act as a lever for economic diversification. Spin-off opportunities could include catering and hospitality, eco-tourism or construction material supply, all powered by clean energy that will be more affordable than before.
Hydro power means reduced risk of diesel and oil spills. Less diesel pollution means clean air.
Food Security and Production
The excess clean energy generated by Innavik can be used to power a greenhouse providing fresh food in Inukjuak.
