Ottawa, FCM invest in a study to build an energy-efficient fire HQ in Welland
August 31, 2022 By Staff
The City of Welland will receive $23,600 to study the feasibility of building a new energy-efficient fire department headquarters on a redeveloped brownfield site that was formerly home to a large steel manufacturer.
The new fire station will replace three existing stations in Welland, which will reduce building operating costs as well as fuel usage from firetrucks travelling between the three stations.
“By investing in community initiatives that cut pollution and support efficient local infrastructure. This is why the Government of Canada and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) are investing in smart, sustainable solutions from coast to coast to coast,” reads a joint statement from Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources and FCM President Taneen Rudyk.
Energy modelling will demonstrate the effects of various energy-conservation measures on the building’s overall energy consumption, energy costs, thermal energy demand index and carbon footprint.
