A report released this week by the Gwich’in Council International calculated the costs, both monetary and social, of diesel usage in isolated communities. The report pegged total utility costs for NWT diesel communities at $0.58 to $0.66 per kilowatt hour, depending on the community, and also looked at potential carbon pricing in the future, as well as health and environmental effects. The full report is available on the council’s website.
