This water chiller pictured above cost somewhere in the neighbourhood of $24 million dollars. But it’s already saving the University roughly $2.5 million a year in operating costs. Further to that, its operation is equivalent to almost 7 mega-watts or about 1500-1600 homes now running off-grid in our community.
They had a business case. Broad support from faculty and students. They built it. They’re seeing instant savings and environmental benefits. That’s how it’s done folks! That’s how it’s done.
One last thing, yet again there were remarks made about our Guelph city building department staff telling everyone how great they were to work with and how they were able to keep things on schedule! Well done to our city staff!
