2021 Green Project Support Recipients

Electric Vehicle Charger – London & District Construction Association (LDCA)

LDCA installed a 34kWp solar canopy system at their building along with installing two EV charging stations. This project achieved their objectives of reducing carbon production to 1.6 tons of CO2 each year and providing construction industry leadership.  This project encourages LDCA members to purchase and operate electric vehicles. The solar canopy covers the entranceway to the building which has increased members’ interest and is referenced to other PV canopy systems in London. This project went towards their GHG emissions reduction targets.

Pollinator Garden & Smart Water Meter – Tepperman’s

Tepperman’s used the green project support towards expanding their 30,000 sqft pollinator garden. Additionally, they installed a smart water meter controller for ‘weather intelligent’ irrigation. These projects went towards Tepperman’s environmental stewardship target.

Low Flow Fixtures, High Efficiency Dryers & Air Curtain – Heeman’s

Heeman’s installed low flow fixtures and toilets in their bathrooms to reduce water usage and they installed high efficiency hand dryers to reduce paper towel waste. In addition, they installed an Air Curtain in one of their greenhouses to reduce energy usage on the farm. These projects went towards Heeman’s GHG emissions reduction, waste reduction and diversion, and water conservation targets.
