The PV system will produce nearly 10,000 kW/h throughout the year, reducing Grise Fiord’s dependence on expensive diesel and carbon footprint by nearly 2.6 tons of CO2 annually. The installer, Green SunRising, has a history of creating unique PV systems in the Canadian in remote Northern Canada. With only 3 months of the year where the waters are passable by sea, the logistical challenges bringing all the elements of the PV system together is incredible.Although transport costs usually equal or even exceed the actual costs, the ROI from eliminatingdiesel generation is less than 6 years!
» The main reason we went with Fronius was for the support from a local organization and familiarity with building systems in the North. «
