Regional Council approved Housing and Property
Department's recommendation to award Ameresco
Canada a contract in the amount of $4,455,000
for energy efficiency retrofit work at Bella Vista
Place, South Common Court and the Peel Heritage
Complex. Eight other Peel Living buildings and
eight Region facilities are slated to undergo
minor retrofit work for lighting, thirteen sites
will receive weather stripping upgrades and six
sites will receive vending machine controls.
Energy efficiency retrofits will advance the
Region's commitment to reduce emissions by 20%
from 1990 levels.
Installing energy efficient equipment and reducing
energy consumption translates into a significant
reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, improving
the environment and demonstrating the Region of
Peel's environmental stewardship and leadership.
