Over 150 Enbridge customers living in Ottawa Community Housing will benefit from cost-effective basement and attic weatherization upgrades to their homes.
Based on current rates, they could save about $500 a year in reduced natural gas bills. This is being made possible through the Enbridge Gas Distribution Home Weatherization Retrofit Program and thanks to the cooperation of Ottawa Community Housing officials and tenants.
Based on before and after home energy evaluations conducted so far, savings of about 1,000 cubic metres (m3) of natural gas per year per home are being projected thanks to an average investment of about $2,000 by Enbridge Gas Distribution. Total reductions of carbon dioxide emissions from all 150 homes are projected to reach 300 tonnes per year.
