NWCC receives funding for carbon neutral project

In its ongoing efforts to save on energy costs at public post-secondary institutions, the Province of British Columbia has been providing funding towards projects which reduce the carbon footprint that the large public institutions can leave across the province.

Towards that goal of lower carbon emissions, the details on another round of funding has just been announced with 20 post secondary institutions sharing in some 3.8 million dollars in capital projects dedicated to reducing energy costs.

For Northwest Community College, the share of the capital project funding has been directed towards an upgrade of their lighting infrastructure, designed to reduce energy consumption and operational costs.

You can learn more about the Provincial Energy Saving program from this media release from the Ministry of Advanced Education.
