In early June, Sonny Zoe, Arctic Energy Alliance’s (AEA’s) Tlicho Regional Energy Project Coordinator visited the community of Wekweeti. He was accompanied by Tom Gross, AEA’s South Slave Regional Energy Project Coordinator, and an electrician from Ryfan Electric. The main purpose of their visit was to install upgrades on all the community government buildings.  The lighting was replaced with very efficient LED lights and the thermostats were replaced with thermostats that can be programmed to lower the temperature in the building when it will not be in use.  These upgrades are expected to save energy and save the community money.

 

While in Wekweeti, Sonny also visited some homes to discuss their energy use and put up posters to promote our programs.

The pictures show the new lights and thermostats that were installed.
