Bonsor gets solar water heating system

Bonsor Recreation Complex has a new solar hot water heating system thanks to $271,067 in funding from the federal government.

The money is from Canada's gas tax fund which provides funding to municipalities to build and revitalize infrastructure.

The Bonsor project, fully funded by the gas tax money, generates renewable solar energy to heat the pool and the centre's hot water system.

"This solar project will significantly reduce energy costs and consumption, making a valuable and innovative contribution to meeting Burnaby’s sustainability goals,” said Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan.
