It is exciting to see municipalities get support to provide a clean energy solution for whole neighborhoods.
ATCO Gas is getting $2 million to study the feasibility of supplying hydrogen to heat new homes in a proposed development in Strathcona County. ATCO and Qualico have teamed up to build houses in the proposed Bremner community. Three hundred homes are proposed for construction in the first two stages of development. The area is projected to eventually house 85,000 people. If it proceeds, the proponents say the community will be the first in Canada to have its heat and hot water fully provided by hydrogen.
