New Brunswick schools split $2 million for efficiency upgrades
By Anthony Capkun
December 7, 2020 – Five schools in New Brunswick will receive a total of $2 million to help reduce energy costs and emissions, paid for from the proceeds of the federal Climate Action Incentive Fund.
“By increasing the energy efficiency of our schools, we are setting an example for our students on how we can take concrete actions to help reduce greenhouse gases while producing savings,” said Minister Dominic Cardy.
Among the projects:
• Priestman Street School in Fredericton will receive $647,000 to install energy recovery ventilators and modernize building controls
• Woodstock High School will receive $520,000 to improve ventilation control systems and its building envelope.
• École Sainte-Anne in Fredericton will receive $500,000 to upgrade its heating system and ventilation control systems.
• Carleton North High School in Florenceville-Bristol and Terry Fox Elementary School in Bathurst also received funds to complete projects.
The funding from the Climate Action Incentive Fund was provided to the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, which worked with the Department of Education & Early Childhood Development to distribute the funds to school districts and schools.
