October 24 is Bioenergy Day in North America. Find out about the City's Downtown Renewable Energy System (DRES), Prince George’s award-winning district energy system, which distributes heat from Lakeland Mills to nearly a dozen downtown buildings.
The system uses sawmill residue to heat water, which is then distributed via nearly three kilometres of pipe to heat buildings in the downtown. The Open House, led by Supervisor of Wastewater and District Energy, Steven Mercedes, and Engineering Assistant, Todd Angus, will explain how the system works, how district energy systems are energy efficient, and how the system helps to greatly reduce the City’s greenhouse gas emissions.
The building is located at 215 George Street and the entrance to the DRES plant is facing 2nd Avenue toward Dominion Street.
Open House attendees will be required to use the entrance off 2nd Avenue.
