Located in Moose Factory and Moosonee in Northern Ontario, the MoCreebec are connected to the provincial electricity grid however their history, remote and northern location, and lack of access to the natural gas network make the energy issues they face much different than other more populated parts of the province. In light of these challenges the MoCreebec are investigating opportunities where energy conservation, efficiency, and electricity generation can be used to increase the community's energy security and financial self-sustainability. This thesis explores the community's unique energy situation by focusing on community preferences for different electricity generation technologies and preferences related to the development of a community energy system. It also seeks to better understand the cost of electricity in the residential sector as well as the behaviour of residential occupants. Based on the data collected, this thesis seeks to provide information to MoCreebec to help inform future energy planning decisions.
