500 KW Solar Power System

The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation will have a 500 kW solar panel system which will generate 550,000 kWh of clean electricity per year.
That's enough to power 45 Canadian Homes per year.
The average annual electricity consumption of a Canadian home is 12,000 kWh per year.

550,000 kWh of Clean Electricity

60.5 Metric Tons of Carbon Emissions Savings.
Which is equal to driving a midsize car for 252,083 KM that's the same as driving around the Earth 6 .29 times

WHAT DOES NET ZERO MEAN?

A net zero building is designed to offset consumption by producing as much clean energy from renewable sources as the building consumes over the course of a year.

Ground Source Heat Pump

Base on the season, the building regulates its temperature by transferring heat to or from the ground using a series of 24 geothermal wells.The Joyce centre for Partnership & Innovation will consume energy at a rate of 75 kWh per square meter per year, which is 2.8x more efficient than that the average Canadian secondary school consumes energy at a rate of 214 kWh per square meter per year.
