With soaring gas prices and fuel costs, renewable energy has become one of the hottest topics this Earth Day.
As Canada’s largest community builder, being green has always been part of Concord’s mission. For instance, It has constructed 70 acres of park and public space, with 30 more acres to be added in the near future, improving the living environment for condo dwellers. It is also a North American leader in EV infrastructure for electric vehicles.
Concord does not just build homes, it is also building a sustainable future for your home. That is why more than a decade ago, Concord created Concord Green Energy to power its future communities and the cities they are built-in with wind, hydroelectric, and solar power. To date, Concord’s green energy projects can power more than twice the needs of all its communities.
As one of Canada’s leader in green energy, Concord is offering a special Earth Day giveaway, and the prize is a Mercedes e-bike. Read on to find out how to enter.
To give a better understanding of how green energy is created around us, let’s take a look at some of these green energy producing sites.
This solar farm, located at the southern shore of Lake Simcoe, is just one of many solar installations in Concord’s portfolio.
The solar panels are installed on fixed axis, sloped to match the latitude of the farm. Each one can produce an average of 1kWh on a typical day.
Concord currently has a $1 billion portfolio in wind, hydroelectric, and solar assets generating power across Canada.
Once completed, it can produce enough renewable energy supply for over 350,000 Alberta residences. The project would displace approximately 1.2 million tonnes per year of CO2, which is equivalent to taking roughly 230,000 Alberta vehicles off the road. Click here to learn more.
