OPG to build microgrid to reduce Gull Bay First Nation's diesel use

Ontario Power Generation Inc. is developing a renewable energy microgrid to help reduce Kiashke Zaaging Anishinaabek's, or the Gull Bay First Nation's, dependency on diesel generators.

The microgrid will integrate solar generation, battery storage and microgrid control technology with diesel generators, according to a March 20 news release.

Construction of the microgrid is expected to start in the spring. Kiashke Zaaging Anishinaabek will own and operate the microgrid upon its expected completion by the end of 2018.

The Ontario government's Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corp. invested C$2.5 million in the project.
