On November 19, 2015, Halidmand County Hydro presented the Grand Erie School Board with an incentive cheque for $14,115 for installing
LED lighting in the Dunnville Secondary School Gymnasium through the saveONenergy Retrofit Program.
This is one project among 30 which Grand Erie Facility Services have applied to receive incentives towards energy efficiency upgrades. Combined these applications are valued at over $70,000.00.
This includes 11 applications with Brantford Power, four applications with Brant County Power (now Energy Plus), eight applications with Haldimand County Hydro and seven applications with Hydro One (includes former Norfolk Power locations) represented across all areas of the Board.
Through these projects the board will reduce their total number of fixtures by 1,280 within these 30 spaces reducing our electricity use by an estimated 750,000 kWh per year.
Upon completion of these 30 projects, the next phase will continue within the 2015-2016 school year with the completion of eight more gymnasiums and 100% of spaces within 28 schools across all areas of the Grand Erie District School Board.
