The GNWT’s 2030 Energy Strategy has identified the Taltson Hydroelectricity Expansion project as a key priority. This talk will provide an overview of the project, and highlight how the 60 MW Taltson Expansion and interconnection into Yellowknife can provide a greener future for the territory’s resource sector, stabilize the cost of energy for residents and set the stage for a full service infrastructure corridor concept – transportation, energy and communications – that would provide clean hydroelectricity to the mineral-rich Slave Geological Province.
