March 12, 2021 | By HPAC Magazine
Approximately $40.8 million from the federal Climate Action Incentive Fund will be spent to upgrade 162 schools in Ontario to be more energy efficient.
The federal government has announced that it will be providing approximately $40.8 million through the Climate Action Incentive Fund to upgrade 162 schools in Ontario to be more energy efficient, a move which will include many HVAC improvements to institutions.
The government provided funding examples including: St. James Catholic School, in Guelph, will receive $230,169 to replace its entire HVAC control system and associated equipment; and École Élementaire Charles-Sauriol, in Toronto, will receive $346,477 to replace its ventilation system to improve energy efficiency.
Revenues from the federal carbon-pollution pricing system are funding these projects.
