Rebate cheque follows audit

The city has received rebate cheques totalling $47,612 from Guelph Hydro and Union Gas for an extensive energy audit program conducted earlier this year.
In all, 13 city facilities including city hall, the River Run Centre, the Sleeman Centre, the main library branch, Centennial Park Arena, the transit facility and recreation centres were audited, a news release said. The audits were to evaluate how electricity, gas and water is being used and find opportunities to improve energy efficiency and reduce operating costs.
The energy audits identified more than 100 electricity, gas and water conservation projects.
These projects will require an investment of $3.3 million spread over the next three years, the release said.
These projects, if done, are expected to result in a 5.9 per cent reduction in energy. This would be worth more than $400,000 a year in avoided costs to the city and its taxpayers, it said.
