Canadian Building Uses Both Geothermal and Solar Energy Systems

Guelph, Ontario [] City Core Developments Inc. has chosen Selectpower Inc. to provide heating, cooling and solar-power systems for its 120,000-square-foot professional-medical building, the Springdale Professional Building project in Brampton, Ontario, which is expected to open in 2007. The 11-kilowatt (kW) solar system will use nine solar panels about 12 by 20 feet each and will combine photovoltaic (PV) power with batteries to provide emergency back-up in the case of power outages. City Core’s use of Selectpower geothermal and solar solutions is estimated to deliver cumulative energy savings of approximately $25 million over a 30-year contract. The project is designed to meet the Canada Green Building Council’s standards for a silver LEED Certified rating (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).
