Recently, two Arctic Energy Alliance (AEA) staff members met up in Whati. Ken Baigent (Energy Management Specialist) and Sonny Zoe (Tlicho Territory Regional Energy Project Coordinator) recently coordinated three Home Energy Assessments in Whati on Monday September 30 and Tuesday October 1. Sonny is a lifelong resident of Whati and manages AEA’s Whati Regional Office. This was Ken’s first visit to the community, so Sonny treated him to a tour of Whati, including many local government buildings plus the community garden, youth centre and two local solar photovoltaic and solar hot water installations. The pictures show Sonny standing in front of the house that he was born in, as well as Sonny and Chief Alfonse Nitsiza following the Energy Assessment performed on Chief Nitsiza’s house. Sonny and Ken used an AEA Infrared Camera together with a blower door to help find air leakage locations in the 3 houses that received Energy Assessments.
