Energy efficiencies pay off for University

University of Windsor received an incentive rebate of $60,809 from Enbridge Gas, operating as Union Gas, on behalf of its Demand Side Management Program. This incentive rebate was given to the University in support of its energy efficiency projects.

In 2018, the University installed natural gas efficient technologies that included condensing tankless water heaters, condensing boilers for space heating, and energy recovery ventilators in its new downtown School of Creative Arts.

The University also took part in a campus-wide energy feasibility study that was conducted by co-op students through Facility Services and, as a result, Enbridge Gas will continue to work with the University of Windsor to implement further energy efficiency measures such as roof insulation and air handling upgrades as well as steam/hot water insulation.
