CCC Chemicals: Energy efficiency

01 May 2015

Last fall, the Saint-Laurent company CCC Chemicals repaired part of its roof. To reduce its energy consumption, it opted for a white roof.

During the work, solar light pipes (www.oesx.com/#!daylighting/ccke) were installed to harness sunlight. Thanks to photo sensors, the lighting system can be turned off when there is enough natural light to illuminate the premises.

 

By making these choices, CCC Chemicals reduced its energy bill by more than 15% in the first three months of 2015, compared with the same period in 2014, despite the very harsh winter we experienced.

 

Clearly, sustainable development initiatives can generate substantial savings. Want more information on this project? Interested in improving your building to reduce your costs? Contact Sophie Mainville, 514-855-6000, ext. 4828.
