Grants available to install renewable energy systems on cabins and homes

Help reduce Nunavut’s reliance on fossil fuels and lower your greenhouse gas emissions by installing renewable energy on your cabin or home.

Cabin owners can apply to the Department of Environment’s Climate Change Secretariat for a one-time grant of up to $5,000 to install solar or wind power systems.

Homeowners located within municipal boundaries in Nunavut can apply to the Nunavut Housing Corporation for a one-time grant of half the cost, to a maximum of $30,000, towards a solar energy system.

Before installing renewable energy, homeowners require Qulliq Energy Corporation’s approval to join the Net Metering program, which gives renewable energy generators credit for putting surplus energy into the power grid.

In the spirit of Piliriqatigiinniq/Ikajuqtigiinniq, Qanuqtuurniq, and Avatittinnik Kamatsiarniq, we must all work together to find innovative ways to care for our environment and increase our self-reliance.
