Community Energy System

By
Real Estate Agent with Royal LePage Prince George

A new hot water community energy system has been proposed for our city. With this system, a central heating plant uses pellets, or biomass fuels to heat the water, which is then distributed to various building for space heating and domestic water heating. Two major benefits: Each building does not need its own boiler or furnace, and renewable fuels can be used. Thus, this would allow our community to be more environmentally friendly, reducing our dependence on fossil fuels, as well as more cost effective.

Prince George is an excellent candidate for a hot water community energy system BECAUSE:

  • Relatively Dense Downtown Core;
  • A Large Number of Publicly Funded Buildings in Close Proximity;
  • A Large Amount of Biomass Available in the Region;
  • Natural Gas Costs are Volatile;
  • Energy Dollars Are Currently Leaving The Community;
  • Improved Regional and Local Air Quality.
  • Updates can be found on the city's webpage: www.city.pg.bc.ca

    Dora - Sounds like there are many factors that would make this cost effective.  Yes we are all thinking of ways to reduce our dependency on fossil fuel.
