During a recent visit to Ulukhaktok,  Sheena Adams, Arctic Energy Alliance’s Inuvik Regional Energy Project Coordinator, supervised upgrades in Hamlet owned buildings and houses. Improvements included the installation of LED lights and programmable thermostats. Joseph Kitekudlak Jr (Hamlet Employee) spent the week assisting with the installations. Joseph is seen here learning how to program the new thermostats so that buildings will automatically cool down when not in use – saving heating fuel. In all 18 LED lights and 27 thermostats were installed. To learn more about the energy savings associated with LED lights, see our website.

The Hamlet looks forward to lower heating and electricity costs next winter!
