City Council approves District Energy Sharing System for Blatchford!

Blatchford West Winter Skating Area

We know it’s too soon for the next edition of our quarterly newsletter, but this news was just too big to wait until next year!

Blatchford has just reached a major milestone in the project with the recent City Council approval of the Renewable Energy Utility for Blatchford. The utility will be based on a District Energy Sharing System, which is an extremely energy efficient way to provide heating, cooling and hot water to homes and buildings. Combined with the energy efficient building standards that Blatchford will use, the system will make great strides in achieving Council’s 100% renewable and carbon neutral goals. 

 In addition to the exciting environmental outcomes that will be achieved with this system, it also means that construction on the first residential stage and section of park can begin in 2017.

Here is how it all works!
