Sustainable Energy Transformation at Conestoga College
Blackstone designed and installed a five-interconnected rooftop solar PV system to assist Conestoga College in meeting their energy demands and reducing GHG emissions on campus. Coupled with our blackPAC™ Energy Management Solution, Conestoga reduces grid consumption during peak, environmentally challenging periods when electricity is both expensive and relies on natural gas-based generation. This project brings the school closer to achieving its 80% carbon reduction goal by 2050.
- Over 3,000 solar PV panels installed on unused rooftop area.
- Generates 1.6 GWh of renewable, clean energy annually.
- Helps Conestoga meet 15% of their annual demand and shave peak demand by 57%.
- 91.56 tCO2e carbon emissions reduction per year, this is equivalent of taking 27 gas-powered cars off the road annually.
