Energy Capital The Magazine – Ameresco starts operations of smart grid project at Canadian school

Ameresco, the leading clean energy technology integrator, announced that it has commenced commercial operations of a smart grid project at a Canadian school this Wednesday. The project will generate carbon-free energy and energy savings for the John Paul II Catholic Secondary School.

Firstly, Ameresco had worked with the London District Catholic School Board (LDCSB) for the last ten years, developing and deploying various projects worth more than $50 million across LDCSB’s facilities.

The project in the JP II school positions it as a leader in carbon reductions; and a model for not only other educational facilities throughout Canada but all facilities across all sectors; proving that the construction of a carbon-free facility is a technically viable option. The school has indeed become Canada’s first retrofitted carbon-neutral school.
