This project will be used as a case study to evaluate the impact that heat pumps have had on Skidegate households and the southern Haida Gwaii electric grid. This is done in two respects within this report. First, changes in residential electricity consumption from before and after the heat pump installations are evaluated. Second, potential impacts to grid power quality are evaluated due to the high penetration of the heat pump motors.
