Qulliq Energy Corporation accepting Net Metering Program applications

IQALUIT, Nunavut (April 10, 2018) – Qulliq Energy Corporation (QEC) is accepting applications for the Net Metering Program. The new program will allow residential customers and one Municipal Corporation customer account per community to produce their own electricity through small scale renewable generators and send surplus energy they generate to QEC’s grids. In exchange, net metering customers will receive credits for future electricity use.

“QEC’s Net Metering Program is a renewable energy initiative that will bring Nunavut closer to a clean energy future,” said the Honourable Jeannie Ehaloak, Minister responsible for QEC. “Net metering allows Nunavummiut to actively participate in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions across the territory.”

Interested customers are required to review QEC’s Terms and Conditions of Service and the associated Net Metering Program Step-by-Step Procedure and Technical Interconnection Requirements documents before completing an account application. QEC strongly recommends that potential program customers do not purchase their renewable energy generating systems until their application has been reviewed and approved by the corporation. Each renewable energy installation must not exceed a generating capacity of 10 kilowatts.

“QEC continues to take steps toward embracing innovative and clean technologies to produce electricity in Nunavut,” said Bruno Pereira, QEC’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are committed to exploring opportunities for our customers to use renewable energy technology, enabling the move away from diesel.”

Program details and documents can be found on QEC’s website at www.qec.nu.ca/customer-care/net-metering-program. For more information on the Net Metering Program, please contact QEC’s Customer Care division at servicedesk@qec.nu.ca or 1-866-710-4200.
