June 16, 2017

Holland College’s Charlottetown campus will undergo $4.6M in upgrades this summer with the participation of students. CBC reports that students from the college’s Energy Systems Engineering Technology program helped plan the updates. “Our students are going to be, or could become, energy auditors and part of that is being able to walk around and figure out what the building is currently doing and how it's operating,” said Daryl Hardy, learning manager with the program. “Then using those numbers as a benchmark and seeing how the energy efficiency measures that are being put in place are going to affect the overall costs of the operation of the building going forward.” The college says that it expects to save about $50K per year in energy costs once the buildings are upgraded.
