The City of Windsor announced Tuesday the launch of a $2.4 million investment to make City-owned facilities more energy efficient.

Following the assessment and design approvals of each site, 12 City facilities have been identified for the installation of new solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, which include new net metering infrastructure to help offset the consumption of power currently taken from the electricity grid.

The 12 facilities planned to receive the enhancements over the next year include the following:

  • Optimist Community Centre and Library
  • Forest Glade Community Centre and Library
  • Constable John Atkinson Memorial Community Centre
  • Fire Hall #2
  • Fire Hall #5
  • Fire Hall #6 and Emergency Operations Centre
  • Fire Hall #7
  • Fire Apparatus Building
  • Parks & Recreation Facilities Storage
  • Parks & Recreation Maintenance Yard
  • South Windsor Library
  • Fontainebleau Library

Through the installation of new solar panels and net metering systems, the City of Windsor is estimated to save 1.1 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year and more than $220,000 in electricity costs.
