Green Initiatives
We will use ENERGYSTAR rated products in our building when available.
We have reviewed the Energy Efficient Resource and Funding Guide provided by the Ministry of Energy and we intend to apply for all available financial incentives and programs.
We will participate in the High Performance New Construction Program offered by Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. to reduce the kilowatt usage in the project.
The energy efficiency measures that we intend to utilize in this project include:
●  Maximize the building design features to minimize energy requirement for the facility.
●  Orientation of the building facings, location of windows and doors to maximize natural     light.
●  Larger roof overhangs to reduce the heat gain in the summer.
●  Use of Low E glass to reduce solar gain to reduce energy use.
●  Use of durable and recyclable products like brick, natural carpet tiles, and ceramic     tiles to reduce the demand on the waste systems.
●  At source water heaters to reduce the energy required to maintain water temperatures
●  High efficiency gas furnaces with programmable thermostats to reduce energy     required to provide heating.
●  ENERGYSTAR rated appliances to reduce energy consumption in the kitchen and     laundry areas.
●  Energy efficient lighting utilizing dimmers, timers and motion detectors.
●  Gray water recycling to reduce the amount of domestic water required to maintain the     properties.
●  Drought resistant plantings to reduce the water and maintenance requirements
