Integrated Home Energy Solutions 2015-2016

This project was made possible with a financial contribution from Natural Resources Canada. It was designed, coordinated, and administered by City Green Solutions and implemented in collaboration with the program delivery partners: City of New Westminster, District of Saanich, Township of Langley, and City of Victoria.
