Project Benefits

The most immediate benefit of this project will be a decrease in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. An average Canadian home produces approx. 6 - 7 tonnes of GHG per year. Estimates for Drake Landing Solar Community indicate the savings of approximately 5 tonnes per home per year. This reduction well exceeds the Government of Canada's One-Tonne Challenge goal and, over the life of the system, should reduce GHG gas emissions by about 13,000 tonnes – while providing comfortable homes with excellent indoor air quality for 52 families.
