Conestoga College has received $5.2M from the Government of Ontario to reduce emissions at its Fountain Street campus in Cambridge, according to the Cambridge Times. Conestoga will reportedly use the investment, part of the province’s Greenhouse Gas Campus Retrofits Program, for thermal energy and renewable electricity systems to improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions.  Conestoga President John Tibbits cited sustainability as a “strategic priority” for the college. The Times added that the school’s Waterloo campus is also being upgraded with solar photovoltaic cells, chilled water storage, LED lighting, and low-flow water fixtures. Cambridge Times
