City of Toronto Selects Mondial Energy to Provide Solar Energy at 15 Municipal Buildings

    TORONTO, Oct. 14 /CNW/ - Mondial Energy has been selected to provide the
City of Toronto with solar thermal installations at 15 buildings under a solar
utility model. Mondial will install, own and operate the solar systems and
sell the metered solar thermal energy to the City under a long term Power
Purchase Agreement.
    The solar installations will displace fossil fuels to heat hot water.
Buildings under consideration for the solar utility include water treatment
facilities, shelters, homes for the aged and community centers. The solar
utility model will allow for the use of proven solar thermal technology
without using City capital, yet provide for energy cost savings over the term
of the agreement and significant reductions in CO2 emissions.
    "The City of Toronto deserves huge recognition for their innovation,"
said Alex Winch, President of Mondial. "They developed a robust and open
process to buy heat from solar, and in so doing have cast a precedent for
municipalities across North America."
    This measure supports the City's efforts to become the renewable energy
capital of Canada, adopted by City Council in July 2007 as part of the report:
"Climate Change, Clean Air and Sustainable Energy Action Plan: Moving from
Framework to Action".
