The “chill” in that water is transferred to 72 buildings in the downtown core, keeping them cool.
Once the “chill” is transferred to Enwave, the deep lake water goes directly from this plant to the City’s drinking water supply.
Deep lake water cooling provides energy savings of up to 90%!
FUN FACT: The network began as a way to get steam to Toronto’s hospitals in 1969.
