The Thermal Residential Heating Aggregation Project is publicly listed on the CSA CleanProjects Registry and has been 3rd party validated under ISO-14064-2 by Kuzuka Ltd. Validation was performed by Conestoga-Rovers & Associates. This project replaces conventional residential fossil fuel combustion heating with solar heating systems located at private residences and commercial swimming pool locations across Canada.
The solar hot water heating systems consist of rubber based solar collector panels and plastic piping. Emission reductions were determined based on Canadian Federal Government developed software that models swimming pool energy use for a variety of locations.
Emission reduction calculations include emissions from material production, transportation and ongoing operations, for both the project and the baseline, using conservative approaches throughout.
