Halifax Regional School Board – 2015 Bright Business Community Award

Many of Halifax’s Schools date back to the 1970s when energy prices were low and efficient heating and lighting were not a concern. Today the importance of energy efficiency is a different story.

With the assistance of Efficiency Nova Scotia, the Halifax Regional School Board has been able to complete upgrades at 57 schools; with 90 schools planned in total. Lighting upgrades and other retrofits that have already been completed will provide an estimated annual energy savings of $1.5 million.
