YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T — The Government of the Northwest Territories has announced $194 million in energy investment as part of its 2022-2025 Energy Action Plan.
The funds will go towards implementing 68 actions and initiatives previously outlined in the 2030 Energy Strategy, a news release states.
Among the initiatives are supports for communities to develop green energy projects and the continuation of major energy infrastructure projects.
