from the Solar Preheating program
plus reduction in GHG emissions of 1,300 tons
Thanks to the solar wall and the other energy efficiency measures we’ve implemented, we no longer need to heat until it’s -2°C outside. That’s a significant improvement with tangible repercussions on employee well-being and our energy bill.

The grant provided by Énergir for the solar air or water preheating program can reach up to $200,000. Énergir will pay $2 per cubic metre of natural gas saved toward the purchase and installation of a solar collector connected to a natural gas equipment.
