McGuinty Government Helps Kab Lake Lodge Reduce Operating Costs

A Northwestern Ontario fishing and hunting resort is reducing operating costs and stabilizing its power supply by going solar.

The Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) has provided $47,269 to Kab Lake Lodge to convert from a diesel-powered system for generating electricity to a new solar system. The resort is located about 100 kilometres north of Thunder Bay on Highway 527 and does not have grid electrical power.
