Paulatuk’s long road to 100-percent renewable energy – Cabin Radio

The course, from May 27 to 30, was co-developed by the community and Yukon University. It will cover the basics of how energy systems in isolated diesel communities work, while teaching people about Paulatuk’s energy priorities and the types of jobs that may arise locally as the community moves to develop a wind project.
