The Arctic Energy Alliance (AEA) visited Tsiigehtchic on July 25-26, 2013 to assess the viability of conducting a Chimney Replacement Project during the 2013 - 2014 fiscal year. AEA is also assessing the viability of maybe powering the community freezer by solar power at the request of the Gwichya Gwich’in Renewable Resource Council (GGRRC). To date, the power requirements are being reviewed, and AEA is working towards presenting options on solar to the GGRRC in the near future.

AEA is currently assessing the technical and relevant requirements of implementing both projects and will continue to work with the community of Tsiigehtichic in the 2013 fiscal year.
