Since last summer, the Patriotes School Board and Ecosystem have been collaborating to reduce the school board’s energy use and greenhouse gas emissions by upgrading 26 schools. The project will decrease energy bills by 39%, generating $960,000 in annual savings. Greenhouse emissions will drop by 2,455 metric tons of CO2 per year, the equivalent of removing 1091 cars from the road.
As part of this project, Mont-Bruno Secondary School will benefit from an innovative energy efficiency measure. Due to its strategic location near Goyer Lake, it will become one of the few schools in Quebec to use an open-loop geothermal system to meet its energy needs.
