  • OSEA: A Green Congregation Builds an Affordable and Efficient Abode of Peace in North Toronto
    have been made in three areas conservation of natural gas electricity and use of solar technology The first project involved reducing natural gas usage New condenser boilers were installed replacing less efficient systems allowing the building to not only generate space heating but also recover waste heat for domestic hot water use The upgrades have resulted in savings of more than 30 on the original consumption of natural gas because the systems are integrated and not separate anymore In another initiative the community overhauled the building s cooling systems by upgrading 250 fan coil units resulting in a 25 reduction in electricity use How did they do it They changed to Electrically Commutated Motors installed programmable digital thermostats and changed the air chillers in the building to smart units to increase the building operators degree of control with the DELTA building automation system What is also exciting is that they used made in Canada technology support our local economy The third upgrade involves the integration of solar energy technology for both electricity generation air heating and water heating Forty four by 8 foot solar panels with a design production of 10 KWH were installed The panels produce electricity that is sold to the Ontario Power Authority through the Micro Feed in Tariff Program MicroFIT which enables homeowners and businesses to sell their power at a fair fixed price through a twenty year contract with the government contributing to a reduction in building operational costs So far 23 367KW of electricity has been generated through these panels The solar thermal wall portion the project pre warms air drawn into the building reducing the need to burn natural gas in the furnace This Solar Wall has collected 171 482 KW equivalent of solar energy as of today In addition twenty four solar water heating collectors have been installed on the roof to pre heat the domestic hot water This system has collected more than 65 000 KW equivalent of solar energy as of today All above upgrades were possible mainly with the SHRRP grants from the Social Housing Unit of City of Toronto The major mechanical projects were managed with the help of Housing Services Corporation Enbridge provided incentive grants for reducing the natural gas demand The staff at the project worked hard for three years to complete these projects The first project involved reducing natural gas usage Abode of Peace in North Toronto were able to take advantage of incentives offered by Enbridge Gas Distribution Their Energy Solutions Consultant worked with the Abode of Peace staff throughout the project planning inspecting building equipment and providing free technical consultation on the building equipment the estimated gas savings and the financial incentives available New condenser boilers were installed replacing less efficient systems allowing the building to not only generate space heating but also recover waste heat for domestic hot water use The savings from the upgraded mechanical equipment will benefit the Abode of Peace for many years to come The most recent change
