MINNEAPOLIS - Honeywell Building Solutions and the city of Burnaby in British Columbia have launched an energy services partnership designed to improve the city's energy efficiency and reduce environmental emissions. Once completed, the $6.4 million Canadian, 12.5-year project is expected to save the city in excess of $500,000 Canadian annually in utility and operational costs.

Burnaby is said to be the first municipality in the province of British Columbia to embark upon a comprehensive energy reduction program of this magnitude. The construction phase is scheduled to begin in July, during which Honeywell will upgrade lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation, and control systems in city buildings. Overall, the city will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1,693 tons annually and will benefit from incentive grants from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and BC Hydro's PowerSmart program, says Honeywell.

"We are proud to proactively look for ways to reduce our city's energy use and to be utilizing this unique self-funding approach for our facility upgrades," said Rick Earle, director of finance for the city of Burnaby. "The program will improve the indoor comfort for our staff and residents who use the city's facilities. In addition, there will be a significant environmental benefit thanks to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions."
